  • DOWNLOAD Free Unicode Tamil Fonts (more than 100 fonts) - These fonts were not developed by me but by other developers. Hence, some of the download links below (ending with the words 'Link2', 'Link3', etc.) will take you to external sites. You can download the required Unicode fonts by clicking the download links available therein and/or following the instructions therein.


    Note:

    a) Using Azhagi or Azhagi+, you can type in Unicode using ALL the fonts you download from the above links, in ANY application (MS-Word, etc.)

SaiIndira, Sai-Sai, SaiVrishin, SaiEmbed-ForPdf) and also 'SaiMalar' & 'SaiJothi'. He is the one who has developed the beautiful Tscii fonts shown at the end of this page (porunai, pothigai, etc.) too.

    d) Tscu_SaiIndira unicode font was created by me using 'SaiIndira' font's characters as the base. 'Tscu' indicates the fact that it is a 'Tscii cum unicode' dual encoded font.

    e) When you install Windows XP and above, 'Latha' Unicode font gets installed automatically. Also, the Unicode font 'Arial Unicode MS' gets installed along with certain MS applications (e.g. during the full installation of 'Microsoft Office'). 'Arial Unicode MS' font contains characters from multiple languages and not just Tamil.

    f) Code2000 is an excellent font (shareware) akin to 'Arial Unicode MS' in that it contains characters from multiple languages. As a matter of fact, it contains the old forms of the Tamil characters 'lai', 'nai', 'Ra', etc.

    g) Unicode is the universal standard for now and the future and has lots of powerful benefits.

    • Option-1: Copy/Paste or Drag/Drop the font file (say Tscu_Comic.ttf) into the 'Fonts' folder (usually 'C:\Windows\Fonts')
    • Option-2: Navigate* to the 'Fonts' folder (usually 'C:\Windows\Fonts'). Click 'File->Install New Font', select the folder where you have saved/extracted the font to be installed and click OK.
    (*) In Windows XP, you can reach the 'Fonts' folder by clicking 'Start->Control Panel->Appearances and Themes' and then clicking the 'Fonts' icon.

  • Important note
    There are a few visitors who are accustomed only to fonts similar to Tamil Typewriter fonts and hence assume that all the fonts downloaded from the above links can be straightaway used for typing in Tamil by selecting them from the fonts list of an editor like MS-Word. If you are one like them, then please note that not all indic fonts are monolingual fonts. Monolingual fonts enable you to type only in one language. For example, 'Bamini' font. Using 'Bamini' font, you can type only in Tamil. Contrary to monolingual fonts, there are bilingual fonts. For example, 'SaiIndira' font, which is in Tscii encoding. Using 'SaiIndira', you can type in both English and Tamil. Some of the fonts you download using the above links will be in that category. Apart from monolingual and bilingual fonts, there are multilingual fonts (e.g. Arial Unicode MS - you can type in English, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Bengali, etc., etc., etc.) and also bilingual/multiencoded fonts (e.g. Tscu_SaiIndira - you can type in both Tscii and Unicode and in both English and Tamil).

    Considering the above, when you select a multilingual (e.g. Arial Unicode MS) or bilingual font (e.g. SaiIndira) from the fonts list of an editor (e.g. MS Word) and start typing, you can type in English only and NOT in Tamil. If you wish to type in Tamil, then you need* a software like Azhagi/Azhagi+ up and running or you need any other tool/utility/mechanism - which will display the Tamil characters from that multilingual/bilingual font.
    (*) as mentioned clearly at two places in this very page, as point a)
