Remington Layout (KrutiDev) With Alt Key Combinations

Hindi Typing Chart of Remington Layout with Krutidev font is useful to learn for beginner Hindi Typists. In the Hindi Language, there are 45 letters based on pronunciation and 52 letters on basis of writing System. So, it is not possible to represent all letters on a keyboard, the problem becomes more intense when we have to tackle half letters also in this scheme for making it possible to do it, so, designers of the layout came up with the unique solution of Alt Key Combinations. These key combinations will not only allow you to press those letters which are not present on the keyboard but also those letters which are present on the keyboard. For example, you can press the letter "ह" using Alt+0103 and by pressing the letter "g" on the keyboard, the same case applies to letter "प" by using Alt+0105 and by pressing the letter "i" on the keyboard but few letters are only possible to type using Alt code only for example letter "ह्य" which can only be typed using Alt+0225. These key combinations are very essential to master for improving your Hindi typing skills. Although these letters which can be typed using Alt code are those which occur rarely in Hindi writing, nevertheless, they do occur you can not ignore them. Today when computers are more popular than typewriters, Mangal Font is becoming new common in Typing arena.
