Gurmukhi ASCII (Phonetic) Keyboard Layout . . .

This page shows you the Gurmukhi ASCII (phonetic) keyboard layout on an English keyboard.

Many of the fonts have Gurmukhi characters in the ASCII range - this helps with systems that do not handle Unicode - but not all of them do. The font Dekho Naveen only has Latin characters in the ASCII range but where other fonts might have Latin characters in the ASCII range, there are also versions that have Gurmukhi characters there as well. Here are the mappings of ASCII-range Gurmukhi characters so that you can see where they all go - most are obvious but some are not because Latin does not have as many consonants in it as Gurmukhi.
 

Note that to get a sihari to appear before the consonant that it is attached to, you have to type it before - there is no clever coding behind the sihari with ASCII

There are a number of points that are worthy of note:

  • Whilst all of the main characters are in all of the fonts, some fonts have extra keyings such as aunkard and dulaunkard additionally mapping to '-' and '='; and,
  • The paer characters are obtained simply by pressing the relevant character - you don't need to press an extra key between the base consonant and the paer character,
