Quillpad.PNGHindi is my mother tongue. I can speak or write Hindi fluently but can’t type using computer keyboard. Now now with the help of Quillpad, I can type text in Hindi using normal English qwerty keyboard. Quillpad is a free online Indian language typing tool where you have to type in Hindi, Gujarati, Punjabi, Marathi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, Malayalam, Bengali and Nepali, using the English keyboard.

    Interesting….but I have been using the method mentioned here: (combination of Google Docs & Google Transliteration) to create spreadsheets and elaborate documents in Hindi. Check it out. It needs no software also…

    I am looking for a software that can convertmy voice dictation into typying in Hindi/Nepali in my computer. I have abut 200 pages of writing in Nepali that I want to have it typed into my computer. But i cannot type i Hindi/Nepali. It is too slow a process for me to type it all by myself even though I could type Roman english that could type in Hindi/Nepali But again I would have to cut and paste. Can you help me please? I have read that India had developed a voice to text software in collaboartion with IBM but I cannot track it down. Can you help me with this. I would be obliged to you.
