The Nepali Typing Keyboard we have developed is fully compliant with Unicode Technologies
Nepali typing with our keyboard (Phonetic cum Romanized Nepali) is very easy

Look below some sentence examples

मेरो नाम राकेश हो ।
mero nam rakesh ho shift+backslash(\)
हामी नेपाली हौ |
hamii nepalii hau shift+backslash(\)
