This is a simple Malayalam Keyboard.
No typing skill is required. Normally we type with our fingers
on keyboard. But, in this Malayalam keyboard we type with mouse.
Click once on the character key, that particular character is
formed in the message box at bottom of the keyboard. Initially, the
user will feel it very slow. But, speed can be gained by regular
use. For any keyboard, practicing is a must. But, in case of
this keyboard, no practicing is required. The only thing is that,
one should become familiar with the location of the character.
