Software for Indian languages

Published: Friday 31 March 1995

-- California-based Apple Computer Inc has recently introduced a software technology called AppleScript that allows users to work with several Indian languages on Macintosh PCs.

AppleScript, says Alok Sharma, education and development services programme manager, Apple Computer Inc, is a software tool that recognises graphics, thereby enabling the computer to respond to alphabetical squiggles. Moreover, it can handle various kinds of data, including numbers, texts, records, lists and application-specific formats.

With the AppleScript technology built directly into Macintosh operating systems, explains Sharma, users will be able to work in more than one Indian writing system.
