Automatic Vowel Forming: Unleash your typing speed with this great algorithm. In a good number of cases, simply typing the kar/matra/short form of vowel will produce the full form of vowel automatically, there is no need to type the Link key. For detail information, please read the Documentations.
This Automatic Vowel Forming can also be kept disabled from the Configuration dialog box.
Old Style â€œRephâ€: Although in phonetic typing method Reph is typed at the beginning of a consonant, this may be seemed peculiar to the users (and it happened!). Avro Keyboard now uses the â€œauto Rephâ€ feature, which will automatically move the Reph at the beginning of a consonant/"juktakkhor" (conjunct) when you type it at the end.
This Old Style Reph can also be kept disabled from the Configuration dialog box.
Assamese Language Support: You can also type Assamese using all these keyboard layouts as necessary Assamese characters are placed here.
English and Bangla typing in the same font: Open type fonts (OTF) allow you to type Bangla and English in the same font. You only have to change the keyboard mode.
Bangla searching/sorting: UNICODE standard Bangla typing allows you to search/sort Bangla texts in accurate way without any hassle. Extremely useful when you are working in spreadsheet or database application.
Faster Bangla typing: Like older methods of Bangla typing, you don't have to change the fonts every time you change keyboard between Bangla and English. Again, for using some matra/kar/short form of Bangla vowels like "o-kar", "ou-kar", you can use only one key to type them. These features have made Avro Keyboard as a perfect choice for professional typists for Bangla typing.
Phonetic Bangla typing: Bangla typing gets its most modern form in Avro keyboard. Instead of using symbolic typing like old mechanical type writers, you can use easy phonetic typing method. Bangla typing is no longer a nightmare!!
Bangla email: Outlook Express and other email clients those support UNICODE, let you mail in Bangla using Avro keyboard.
Bangla chat/ Bangla instant messaging: Some instant messengers like MSN Messenger allow you to chat in Bangla. With Avro keyboard, you can even type Bangla and English in a single sentence in MSN Messenger.
