making Assamese writing easier

About Luit​pad

​LuitPad is a stand-alon​e, fully Unicode compliant software designed for rapid typing of Assamese words and characters. There are two main typing options; one which is based on approximate ​sound of words and the other based on the sound of characters, both of which are efficient and user-friendly, even for a first-time user. Assamese is  spoken throughout North-Eastern parts of India by approximately 30 million people. There is a severe lack of user-friendly software available for typing Assamese text. This is perhaps the underlying reason for the minuscule presence of Assamese based information storage and retrieval systems, both off-line and on-line. With LuitPad, the user can retrieve Assamese characters and words using an English alphabet based keyboard in an effective and intuitive way.​

LuitPad is compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux with a GUI. The software can store the contents in LuitPad file format (“.pad” extension) that can store images and text. In addition, .pad files can be easily exported to pdf and html files.
