Writing Bengali words using phonetic keyboard scheme is as easy as writing our names in English.

For example, can be written as bhArat AmAr desh. Bengali script used for Bengali, Assamese, and Manipuri languages are supported in Baraha. The phonetic keyboard is shown below with examples.

অ = a, = ~M =M =H = A,aa, ই = i, ঈ = I,ee, উ = u, ঊ = U,oo, ঋ = Ru, ৠ = RU, এ = e,E, ঐ = ai,oi ও = o,O, ঔ = au,ou

ক = k, খ = K,kh, গ = g, ঘ = G,gh, ঙ = ~g চ = c,ch, ছ = C,Ch, জ = j, ঝ = J,jh, ঞ = ~j ট = T, ঠ = Th, ড = D, ঢ = Dh, ণ = N = t, থ = th, = d, ধ = dh, ন = n = B,bh, =m = S,sh, ষ = Sh, স = s, হ = h,~h

প = p, ফ = P,ph, ব = b,v,

য = Y, য় = y,Yx, (ৰ) = r, ল = l,L, ব = v,w, ড় = Dx ঢ় = Dhx = j~ja = kSha ক = kYa (YA PHALA)

Note: ৰ and ব are used in Assamese language.

ঽ=& ₨ = Rs Danda = | Double Danda = ||

'g'. an implicit 'a' matra is assumed for the last consonant of the word. 't'. etc. We can get double smart quotes(“ ”) by using them twice. Example: nyAy = য় য় ‘হ’ consonant can be written in two ways.প When two or more consecutive consonants appear in the input.p --> ka. Example ka kA ki kI ku kU kRu kRU ke kai ko kau kaM kaH কক কক Ami bhAratIY য কক ক ক ক ক ক ক Note: In the Bengali phonetic keyboard. Example: . it results in a live consonant. you have to use '~h' instead of of 'h'. 'h'. " ? ! % \ ~ _ # $ translate into the same symbols in Bengali also.Ta. '~h'.ট.pa -->ক. The last consonant takes the full form and the preceding consonants become half consonants.+ * / = .চ. 'd'. : .Zero Width Joiner = ^ Zero Width Non Joiner = ^^ Punctuation Marks: The English symbols [ ] { } ( ) .ca. . Example: k.t. they make a consonant conjunct. When a consonant character is followed by a vowel character. If you want to apply a ‘হ’ half consonant to consonants such as 'k'. .T. Quotation Marks: ` ' characters are converted to single smart quotes(‘ ’) characters.ta.c.

ZWNJ characters: ^ = ZWJ (zero width joiner) ^^ = ZWNJ (zero width non joiner) Usually when a consonant cluster (two or more consecutive consonants) occurs. the ZWNJ character should be used after the consonant. Example: rAj^^kumAr = rAjkumAr^^ = If two English characters are making one Bengali vowel (ex: ai. half-form of the consonant is formed. then. ZWJ or ZWNJ character can be used to separate them into different vowels. Example: iMDiYainPo = ই ড য ফ iMDiYa^inPo = ই ডযই ফ iMDiYa^^inPo = ই ডযই ফ .bakkiMghAm = ব bakkiMg~hAm = ব ঘ হ ZWJ. Example: rakShaNa = rak^ShaNa = ণ ষণ If a dead consonant (consonant with hasant symbol) is required. ou). it will be rendered as a ligature if that is available in the font. If a consonant is followed by the ZWJ. The ZWJ and ZWNJ can be used to produce an alternate rendering of the ligatures.
