Downloadable 'Generic' XML files


Steps - to avail the "downloadable" xml files

Please note that upto 'Aplus-Telugu-Unicode-PhoneticTransliteration.xml', the xml files are already available in the 'data' directory of Azhagi+. And, thereafter, upto 'AzhagiPlus-Tamil-Unicode-Inscript.xml ', the xml files are already available in the 'azXMLs' directory of Azhagi+. So, there is no need to avail them anew. The steps given below are for availing the rest of the files, if any listed, under the "Downloadable XML files" section or "Downloadable 'Generic' XML files" section.
  1. Please download and install Azhagi+ latest version (10.33 or above) from www.azhagi.com. If this has been already done, good.

  2. Then, download xmls-all.zip.

  3. Now, open 'xmls-all.zip' and kindly extract your specific* XML file into the 'azXMLs' folder of Azhagi+. You can find the 'azXMLs' folder in the directory in which you installed Azhagi+. So, in your system, the 'azXMLs' folder could be "C:\Program Files\Azhagi+\azXMLs" (OR) it could be even "D:\AzhagiPlus-Porto\azXMLs" if you installed the portable version of Azhagi+.
    (*) For instance, if you want to avail 'AzhagiPlus-Telugu-Unicode-MedicalSymptoms1.xml', then from within the files present inside 'xmls-all.zip', kindly extract 'AzhagiPlus-Telugu-Unicode-MedicalSymptoms1' alone into the 'azXMLs' folder of Azhagi+.

  4. Start Azhagi+ (10.33 or above). You will see the corresponding LFK added. For instance, for "AzhagiPlus-Telugu-Unicode-MedicalSymptoms1.xml", you will see the LFK "Telugu+Unicode+MedicalSymptoms1" added in Azhagi+.

  5. To set an hotkey to type in this LFK, in ANY application, is a very simple process. The instructions are here - oper-plus.html#changehotkey with screen snapshots.
    Note: Actually, in Azhagi+, by pressing the global hotkey F10 (or F11), you can start typing in any LFK even without setting any specific hotkey. That is covered under the section "F10 (or F11) and it's global use" in the same page - oper-plus.html#f10.

  6. That is all to it. Hereafter, whenever you want to type in ANY application using the recently added LFK, keep Azhagi+ running, switch to the external application, press the required hotkey and start typing.

How to transliterate Sanskrit (and other languages) in Tamil with subscripts (2,3,4)?



  1. First, you have to download and install the latest Azhagi+ 10.33 and above from www.azhagi.com. If this has been already done, good. But, in case you have not installed the portable version earlier, I suggest you better do it. Once done, please employ the steps below with the portable version only.

  2. Then, download xmls-all.zip.

  3. Now, open 'xmls-all.zip' and kindly extract "AzhagiPlus-Tamil-Unicode-SanTamilPhonetics.xml" file into the 'azXMLs' folder of Azhagi+. You can find the 'azXMLs' folder in the directory in which you installed Azhagi+. So, in your system, the 'azXMLs' folder could be "C:\Program Files\Azhagi+\azXMLs" (OR) it could be even "D:\AzhagiPlus-Porto\azXMLs" if you installed the portable version of Azhagi+.

  4. Start Azhagi+ (10.33 or above).

  5. In the opening screen of Azhagi+, in the listbox captioned "List of set hotkeys (only the checked ones available for use)", scroll down and select "Tamil+Unicode+SanTamilPhonetics" so that this line is highlighted. Now, do not close the screen. Just keep it open.

  6. Open MS-Word or any other Unicode-aware editor.

  7. Press the global hotkey 'F10' (or 'F11' or whatever other key is set as global hotkey in your Azhagi+) and start typing in English according to the SanTamilPhonetics key mappings you find in the file AzhagiPlus-Tamil-Unicode-SanTamilPhonetics.xml. You will get the characters in subscripted Tamil. That is all to it.

Note-1: It is possible to set a specific hotkey for typing in "Tamil+Unicode+SanTamilPhonetics" instead of selecting from listbox and then pressing the global hotkey 'F10'. The procedure is given here - oper-plus.html#changehotkey. If you want, you can follow this procedure and set a specific hotkey (for e.g. Ctrl+F9) to type in "Tamil+Unicode+SanTamilPhonetics". If you do not want, so be it. The above steps can be followed at any time to type in "Tamil+Unicode+SanTamilPhonetics".

Note-2: Apart from setting a specific hotkey, you can also autostart Azhagi+ along with windows so that you need not manually start Azhagi+ every time you wish to type in "Tamil+Unicode+SanTamilPhonetics" LFK. The settings to effect for the same are mentioned here - oper-plus.html#settings
