English abstract

The paper is the first among a series of documents on computer applications in Indian languages to be published in the journal. Traditionally, computer applications were based on English as the medium of interaction with the system. The technology is not yet viable to Indian languages. Majority of Indian population does not speak or write in or understand English and this weakness of technology hinders the attempts to use computers for education and literacy, meant for majority of the population who should get the benefit of Information Technology. In many parts of the world computer applications have been developed in different regional languages, appropriate to the user communities. This introductory paper gives a perspective of research and development computational linguistics, the phonetic aspect of Indian languages, transliteration standards, lack of uniformity, data entry methods, keyboards, phonetic mapping of the vowels and consonants, web pages supporting display of Indian language text etc in the context of computing in Indian languages.
