Testimonials
  • Ms. Yamuna Vittal (in Sep 2011)

I discovered Azhagi yesterday evening after a Google search "type in tamil in MS word" and am so delighted to have come across this incredible piece of software. Installation was a snap, the instructions to get one started were so simple that I was able to get to my task with no learning curve. ... .. .

I was so happy with the software that I wanted to find more about the people behind it. I have no words to tell you how inspired I am by your life and work. My heartfelt thanks to you. Your words of advice in the interview were addressed to youth, they speak clearly to everyone, and I hope to keep them in my heart as I navigate my path. I want to wish you joy, success, long life, but most of all I pray that you'll abide in the turiya jnana state that you are seeking.

  • Mr. Rajesh Williams (in Jan 2015)

Happy new year 2015

Thank you for developing Azhagi + which made Malayalam Typing very interesting. I had tried so many Malayalam typing softwares available in net since 2008 but none was easy / lack of support / not getting alphabets / combinations, etc. Now I am able to type Malayalam in Word document with Azhagi+ and also able to type Malayalam directly in Google also without using Google transliteration. പുതുവത്സരാശംസകള്‍ 2015. May this new year the whole Viswam (world) use Azhagi+.

  • Mr. Satish Chandra (in June 2015)

Wish you all the best and may god grant you more strength and vigor to pursue whatever you want to pursue.

Transliterating is a piece of cake with Azhagi+ now. I can swing from Tamil to Kannada to Sanskrit and Gujarati.

You have no clue what you did to me.

  • திரு. சுந்தர் (சென்னையிலிருந்து, 2011-இல்)

கடந்த 4 வருட காலமாக அழகி மென்பொருளை உபயோகித்து வருகிறேன். நான் சென்னை "......"யில் வசித்து வருகிறேன்.

சுருக்கமாக ஒன்றே ஒன்றைச் சொல்ல விரும்புகிறேன். இன்று நாங்கள் சாப்பிடும் உணவிற்கு நீங்கள்தான் பாதி காரணம். எப்படி வாழப் போகிறோம், எப்படி போட்டி போடப் போகிறோம், எப்படி சமாளிக்கப் போகிறோம் என்று பயந்து கொண்டிருந்த எனக்கு உங்கள் அழகி மென்பொருள் உதவியால் நம்பிக்கை வந்தது. தமிழ் டைப் செய்யத் தெரியாத நான் இப்போது இரண்டு கல்லூரிகளின் பிராஜக்ட் ஒர்க் செய்யும் அளவிற்கு முன்னேறி உள்ளேன்.

எங்கள் பகுதியில் நான் ஒருவன் மட்டும்தான் தமிழில் தட்டச்சு செய்து தருகிறேன் என்பதை நினைக்கும்போது, என்னுடைய வெற்றிக்கு முகம் தெரியாத நீங்கள்தான் காரணம்.

  • Mr. Abilio (from Brazil, in 2012)

God bless you for your work.

I'm from Brazil, a student of Sanskrit. Your program is very useful, thanks for this. ... .. .

  • Mr. Bhamidipati Phani Babu (from Pune, in 2012)

I worked in Ordinance Factories for 42 years. I developed an interest in writing blogs. I started off in English, but my desire was to write in Telugu (my mother tongue). I was trying desperately for typing in Telugu. I could find one 'yyy'. But I was vexed with Copy..Paste.. etc.

Recently I read a {blog} post in Telugu, through which I could get to know about your what should I say... FANTASTIC, WONDERFUL site http://azhagi.com.

What can I say... it was amazing, so user-friendly... so easy specially for a novice like me.

GOD BLESS YOU & YOUR TEAM....

  • Mr. M Koteswar (from Secunderabad, in 2012)

Mail 1:

Thanks a lot for your wonderful India's smallest portable Indic typing software. You have taken so much pain to include all the Indian languages.

Mail 2:

Today 15 (fifteen) officers reported to our institute for Hindi training. I have explained them about Azhagi+ for 2 hours continuously. ... .. .

I have even demonstrated how to create our own keyboard layouts (e.g. like Baraha's). Everyone appreciated your software very much.

  • Mr. KS Narayanan (from Calcutta, in 2012)

I express my deep sense of gratitude for explaining as to how Indian languages are to be scripted in phonetic manner. Azhagi+ is indeed a versatile one and I can write in Bengali also without any problem.

  • Mr. Thodla Subramanyam (from Chennai, in 2014)

I am using your Azhagi+ for the last 3 years and I feel it is the best and very easiest software to type in many languages. Mostly I am using this for writing in Gujarati and Hindi languages apart from Tamil & Telugu. ... .. .

  • Mr. S Rajagopalan (from Coimbatore, in 2012)

My dear Sairaam Visu,

Every moment of my writings in Thamizh, Hindi or Samskritham, I think and thank you through HIM, my Marutha Malaiyan.

  • Mr. Rajesh Williams (in Dec 2014)

Thank you for the inspiration to modify the key map settings.

I rank your Azhagi+ with crore* {crore-STAR}. East or West, South or North, Azhagi+ is the best.

  • Mr. Bejoy Misra (from Puttaparthi, in Jan 2015)

This is to congratulate you for the multi language Azhagi tool you have developed. I have used a couple of other tools, but this one is the smallest and smartest.

I stay in AP, but speak Odia, the language of ODISHA, and do some work in that language.

NOTE:
  • Only few sample comments given above. More sample comments can be read here and also here (in Tamil).
  • I take this opportunity to immensely thank all the users and well-wishers. In all, Thanks to GOD for everything......
