Knowledge Base - Special Symbols
Following special symbols may be required for writing Vedic scriptures and musical notes. These symbols are supported for Kannada, Devanagari, Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam scripts only. Click "Help->Script->Phonetic Keyboard" menu in Baraha editor and read "Special Symbols" section at the bottom for details. These symbols are available only in Baraha ANSI fonts such as "BRH Kannada Extra", "BRH Devanagari Extra", "BRH Tamil Tab Extra", "BRH Telugu Extra", "BRH Malayalam Extra". Hence, these symbols can be typed in Baraha editor, and in BarahaIME editor by selecting Phonetic Keyboard and ANSI encoding. Since these symbols are not available in Unicode fonts, they can't be typed in BarahaPad editor.
