System requirements:

  • System with Windows XP OS and Windows XP installation CD

Choose romanized if you are new to nepali typing romanized layout screenshot. It types k for क, b for ब. nepal for नेपाल, yoges for योगेस. It will be fun, try it.

Choose traditional if you are familiar with BA, KA, MA, NA nepali typing like in preeti, kantipur. If you need the keyboard layouts for these true type fonts you can download here. I have included the keyboad layouts for preeti font, kantipur font and fontasy_himali_ tt font. If you need the keyboard layouts for other fonts than mentioned you can request me at my feedback.
