Naturalised Tamil Computing - The Hindu 28 June 2010

Tamil computing must be naturalised for average user

Anyone who is able to read or write Tamil should be able to use the language easily on the computer too.

“When people see their language on the computer screen, they get excited and want to make more use of it,” points out Michael Kaplan, Programme Manager of the World Readiness Team of Microsoft Corp. Hence, “For any user it is necessary to get rid of the computer baggage that makes it harder for them to use their language on the computer naturally.”
