  5. Hi Viven,

    Got one more question . Could you please help me ? I am building a website for our telugu community and need a rich text editor which supports telugu .
    I mean , for example if you go to http://telugugreetings.net , before sending the greeting you can write some thing in telugu in the form . I checked the view source and it is using http://pudingi.com/js/telugutoolbar.js . Can I know any java script like this for free I can use it for my site ? Moreover for text area in addition to supporting telugu , Bold , adding image and embeding video functionalities … I checked tinymce editor , but couldn’t find the one that supports telugu .

    Thanks a lot for your help in advance

    Regards
    Kiran

    1. Here is my suggestion: Use TinyMCE or any other rich text editor. And, leave the typing in Telugu to users. Let your users choose their favorite Telugu typing method.

      For a moment, think not just about your website. Telugu people should be able to type Telugu on their computers, in any application, any web site. There are already such tools. See the second section (కంప్యూటర్లో ఎక్కడైనా తెలుగు టైపు చెయ్యడానికి) in this link: etelugu.org/typing-telugu

      If you educate your users in that direction, that will be good. This way we can avoid the need for every Telugu site coming up with their own solution for typing Telugu.
