Writing Oriya words using phonetic keyboard is as easy as writing our names in English. For example, ମୋର ଜନ୍ମଭୂମି ଭାରତ can be written as mor janmabhoomi bhaarat.

ଜ୍ଞ = j~ja

କ୍ଷ = kSha

କ୍ୟ = kya (YA PHALA)

Zero Width Joiner = ^

Zero Width Non Joiner = ^^


Punctuation Marks:

The English symbols [ ] { } ( ) - + * / = ; : . , " ? ! % \ ~ _ # $ translate into the same symbols in Oriya also.


Quotation Marks:

` ' characters are converted to single smart quotes (‘ ’) characters. We can get double smart quotes (“ ”) by using them twice.

When a consonant character is followed by a vowel character, it results in a live consonant.


ka kA ki kI ku kU kRu kRU ke kai ko kau kaM kaH

କ କା କି କୀ କୁ କୂ କୃ କୠ କେ କୈ କୋ କୌ କଂ କଃ

mu~M jaNe bhAratIY.

ମୁଁ ଜଣେ ଭାରତୀଯ.



In the Oriya phonetic keyboard, an implicit 'a' matra is assumed for the last consonant of the word.



k,c,T,t,p --> ka,ca,Ta,ta,pa -->କ,ଚ,ଟ,ତ,ପ


When two or more consecutive consonants appear in the input, they make a conjunct. The first consonant takes the full form and the following consonants become half forms.



sAPTwEr = ସାଫ୍ଟ୍ୱେର

rAjkumAr = ରାଜ୍କୁମାର


‘ହ’ consonant can be written in two ways; 'h' and '~h'. If you want to apply a ‘ହ’ half consonant to consonants such as 'k', 'g', 't', 'd', etc, you have to use '~h' instead of of 'h'.



bakkiMghAm = ବକ୍କିଂଘାମ

bakkiMg~hAm = ବକ୍କିଂଗ୍ହାମ


ZWJ, ZWNJ characters:


^ = ZWJ (zero width joiner)

^^ = ZWNJ (zero width non joiner)


If a dead consonant (consonant with halant symbol) is required in the middle of a word, the ZWJ or ZWNJ character should be used after the consonant.



rAjkumAr = ରାଜ୍କୁମାର

rAj^kumAr = ରାଜ୍‍କୁମାର


If two English characters are making one Oriya vowel (ex: ai, ou), then, ZWJ or ZWNJ character can be used to separate them into different vowels.



iMDiYainPo = ଇଂଡିଯୈନ୍ଫୋ

iMDiYa^inPo = ଇଂଡିଯ‍ଇନ୍ଫୋ
