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, the Chinese National Standard of Tibetan Keyboard Layout), support to display Tibetan script and a Tibetan font, Microsoft Himalaya.

  • An introduction on how to use the Windows built-in Tibetan Keyboard can be found at yalasoo.com.

Additional Tibetan Fonts and Wylie Input Methods

In addition you might want to install additional Tibetan Fonts (all existing Unicode fonts seem to work well) or an alternative Tibetan Input Method, for example TISE. TISE supports Wylie. Or you can use an other Wylie Tibetan keyboard : DenjongTibType on all Windows platforms, including 32 & 64 bits versions.

You can directly start using Notepad, OpenOffice or the latest Microsoft Office version to create Tibetan documents in standard Unicode encoding.
