Tibetan Unicode enabling Windows Vista or Windows 7

Input methods and complex script display

No software needs to be installed: Windows Vista / 7 already contain all three required components: an input method (see Control Panel / Regional and Language settings for a Tibetan keyboard), support to display Tibetan script and a Tibetan font, Microsoft Himalaya.

Additional Tibetan Fonts and Wylie Input Methods
