Even though our mother tongue is Sinhala, it is still difficult for us to type in Sinhalese. The reason being that we are not used to type in Sinhalese very often and also the lack of proper software. It is better if we have the habit of typing in Sinhalese, same as we do in English.
This website is designed to type Sinhala using one of our habits. We all are really good at texting. This method is all about a way of typing Sinhala the same way we text/ SMS with each other. This is a web page where you can get everything done online and you do not need any software installed. This can be easily practiced by following the below steps.
Visit the slunicodes.com website
Type in the box at the top of the web page the same way you type an SMS. You can get help from the ‘Key Typing Hints’ on the right.
You can get the Sinhala text from the following second and the third boxes on the web page. If you are using this text for something like a web page, then you need to get the text from the second box or from the Unicode section.
To use the text for a software like Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator, you need to get the text from the third box.
Three steps and it’s that easy!
