Why is the project unique?
In the past, similar solutions have been aimed at the predominantly English-speaking audience. By design, Lipikaar makes no such assumption about the user who finds it very simple to type with Lipikaar, with no learning. Previous typing methods required the users to put special stickers on the keyboard, use clumsy key stroke combinations, learn key mappings, or were heavily biased towards getting the right phonetic English spelling. Lipikaar overcomes all these drawbacks. Lipikaar has been patented (WO/2006/117798).
