manner, in Tamil (Hindi, Sanskrit, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Gujarati, Bengali, Punjabi, Oriya, Assamese, Sourashtra, Grantha, etc., etc.)
2. Typing in Tamil (non-unicode) in MS-Word, using 'Classic Azhagi'
The above is 'Direct Tamil Input' in MS-Word (in non-unicode, using the Tscii font 'SaiIndira'). Not only in MS Word, one can do this Tamil transliteration or Tamil typing in other Windows applications like MS-Excel, MS-Access, etc. For instance, start Azhagi fully, ensure that 'Unicode Input' under 'Preferences' menu of Azhagi is un-ticked
(i.e. REMOVE the tick, if present), open any other application (say MS-Word), set that application's font to SaiIndira (as circled and shown in the screenshot above) or any other TSCII encoded font (any font in your system whose name starts with 'TSC' or 'Tsc'), press 'F10', type in English and see it in Tamil. As simple as that
If you are using a LAPTOP and F10 seems not working, read this help tip
