The Tamal Typeface Family
Sample: tamal.gif
Description: Tamal is the original TrueType Sanskrit-diacritic typeface. Along with the complementary DiacWin (also available here), it's the simplest way to use Sanskrit diacritic characters in your word processor, etc. The typefaces on this page use a character set designed for the greatest compatibility with various Windows and DOS software. Although the set includes some foriegn language symbols in addition to Sanskrit, it cannot be used for most European languages. The typeface used in Tamal is similar to TimesTen. (Normal, Italic, Bold, Bold-Italic) (133KB)

Due to licensing restrictions, I can no longer offer Tamal. Please download one of the other fonts below.

DiacWin - Diacritic Keyboard Filter for Windows
Screen Shot: diacwin.gif
Description: DiacWin is a tiny utility that stays in the background allowing you to easily type Sanskrit diacritic characters anywhere in Windows. You can have DiacWin start with your computer (it's inactive when run) and then use the hotkey to activate it when you need it. Even when active, though, it's quite unobtrusive. (5KB)
