The topics that are proposed for discussion at the conference include open

source software and localization, Tamil enabling in mobile phones, OCR and voice

recognition and Tamil Internet and social networking.

Educational and enter­tain­ment CDs from Softview and Dove multimedia were on

display at the exhibition. Also seen was a demo stall of Learn Fun Systems.

'Handwriting Recognition Software', which was first released in 2006 for those

who find it difficult to type in Tamil, attracted many. Alphabets written with a

stylus on touch-screen or on tablet or with a mouse are recognized by a standard

Tamil font.

Anto Peter, Director, Softview Technologies and an enthusiast in the field of

Tamil computing said, “Tamil computing commu­nity is growing every year. This

year the exhibition saw an overwhelming response. Many even visited along with

their families.”
