Munir Unicode Bangla Layout Released!

Munir Layout users can easily learn and use the Unicode version.

Lots of Bangla speaking people around the world learned typing on a typewriter. It’s really hard to believe that typewrite can print all the conjuncts we need for our script. The widest typewriter layout was Munir Optima layout.

Later someone designed a software, which can let those typists to use that layout in computer for the hacked ASCII Bangla fonts. But no one did any research on making the layout Unicode compatible.

Ekushey team did some research and made this happen. It was tough but not impossible. Due to Unicode standards, we had to do some improvements to the layout, but it’s very minor and now Munir users can easily learn it and use it for their Unicode inputs.

The layout manager is free to download from here.
