Choose from our selection of Tibetan keyboards and type Tibetan in all your favourite applications, without changing your hardware.
These Unicode keyboards run on Keyman for Windows in any compliant Windows application. They allow intuitive typing of Tibetan-script languages using a standard hardware keyboard.
Tibetan Unicode Direct Input
Tibetan Unicode Direct Input is designed to type all Tibetan characters and stacks directly. You get a Tibetan character every time you press a key, without having to use the Alt key or remember complex transliteration combinations. The keyboard types in a phonetic style based on the English (QWERTY) layout. This keyboard also features special menus for Tibetan symbols and lets you type Latin and Cyrillic letters.
Tibetan Unicode EWTS
Tibetan Unicode EWTS is based on the Extended Wylie Transliteration Scheme (EWTS), an approach to typing Tibetan which avoids most Shift, Alt, and Alt+Shift combinations. Tibetan characters are created from EWTS -transliteration each time you type a vowel or a Space (tsheg). Special rules apply for long-stacks. This keyboard also features special menus for Tibetan symbols and lets you type Latin and Cyrillic letters.
