If the characters in this page are not visible in Kannada, then it means you do not have even one suitable Unicode Kannada font in your system. To download and install atleast one FREE Unicode Kannada font, kindly visit

Important note on "t, T, d, D, th, Th, dh, Dh"
In Azhagi's Unicode Editor, if you click on 'Tools->Options' and select the
('classic' style is the default), then the mappings for "t, T, d, D, th, Th, dh, Dh" change (To view the key-mappings table for the same, please visit
and click on 'modern style' link given under your chosen language). In
, you can effect this same setting by clicking 'Tools->Options->Other Languages'.
Important note on 'ch'
In Azhagi's Unicode Editor, if you click on 'Tools->Options' and tick the 'ch, Ch' checkbox, then 'ch' would also take the same mapping as that of 'c'.
Various other important options
. Herein, you can learn more on the above options too.
Conjuncts (Consonant Clusters)
The consonant conjuncts get formed automatically as you keep typing your words. For e.g.
= amma, ದಾನ್ಯ = daanya, ಅಸ್ತಿ = asti
ಸ್ರಿ = sri, ಕರ್ಮ = karma, ರಾಷ್ಟ್ರಿಯ = raaShtriya
ಚಕ್ರ = cakra, ದ್ವನಿ = dvani, ಹೋಗುತೇನೆ = hoagutaene, etc. etc.
= 1x, ೨ = 2x, ೩ = 3x, ೪ = 4x, ೫ = 5x
೬ = 6x, ೭ = 7x, ೮ = 8x, ೯ = 9x, ೦ = 0x
x, ` and X modifiers
when applied after certain Kannada letters modifies them. For e.g.
kruxpaa = ಕ್ರುಪಾ, Rux = ೠ, 1x = ೧ (numeral 1)
Whenever x does not take the role of a modifier, it just prints 'ಕ್ಷ್'. For e.g.
laxman = ಲಕ್ಷ್ಮನ್
when applied before certain Kannada consonants modifies them. For e.g.
`g = ಙ್, `j = ಞ್
` when applied between certain Kannada consonants (like k`h, g`h, t`h, d`h, etc.) helps them to form their natural conjuncts. For e.g.
bakkiMghaam = ಬಕ್ಕಿಂಘಾಮ್ whereas bakkiMg`haam = ಬಕ್ಕಿಂಗ್ಹಾಮ್
can be applied between Kannada consonants to avoid forming the natural conjunct (which would have occurred otherwise). For e.g.
vatsalaa = ವತ್ಸಲಾ whereas vatXsalaa = ವತ್ಸಲಾ
X can also be applied between certain Kannada vowels (say 'ai' or 'ou') to help them get separated into their component vowels. For e.g.
priyaiMDiyaa = ಪ್ರಿಯೈಂಡಿಯಾ whereas priyaXiMDiyaa = ಪ್ರಿಯಇಂಡಿಯಾ
