Takhti is a nice and small program for writing Hindi online or elsewhere. It consists of a wordpad in which you can type using your English keyboard and it translates automatically into Hindi letters (or Devanagari script). The best part is that Takhti software is completely free program. It is offline software. That is, you don’t require an internet connection to type. Takhti software comes for Windows operating system NT, XP, and Vista. [See specification table]
Takhti Hindi wordpad can be downloaded for free from
www.oocities.org/hanu_man_ji. Or you can directly download it
Takhti is not a phonetic word editor [See-What is phonetic word editor?]. Thus, each key on your English keyboard has certain predefined values for Takhti. Hence, while typing, you can enjoy typing Hindi. But it can be a little tricky for beginners. I have written a tutorial How to type Hindi using Takhti free software: For beginners. Read it.
