how to use MYANMAR script when it is not available on windows keyboard options for second language

is it possible for me to use a UNICODE burmese script as Burmese or Myanmar are not options when using the keyboard change language settings in Windows.

Could I download one such as; http://my.duniakitab.com/ThanLwinSoft/ThanLwinSoft/Ekaya/

My form will be built in English and I hoping to carry out the survey in Myanmar language.

Thanks

Karen

Hi Karen,
Can you send a screenshot of what you see when you type in your text in Burmese? I’m not having any issues on my end:

Typing in the language directly with the keyboard setting is the only way to do it; using a pseudo script will not work since these only save the characters in Latin but with a fake display that works only on your computer.

Best,

Tino

Hi Tino

I have done typed it in Myanmar script yet as it is not a supported language on my keyboard currently.

I have looked into it and it says it does not come on Windows as standard. Did you have it on yours already or did you download software to make it work?

Thanks

Karen

Hi Karen,

I have Burmese available on my Mac. On Windows I understand this requires installing additional keyboard support for Burmese since it doesn’t come natively. The link you sent earlier seems like it may work for this. Otherwise I would Google for more options on this issue since others have faced this challenge before. See also https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:Multilingual_support_(Burmese) and https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windows/en-US/3206936a-4141-41f0-89ce-b46ee0eec25d/burmese-on-windows-7-pro-oem?forum=w7itproui

Hi Karen, I am having the exact same issue (with Burmese and Karen). I have downloaded keyboards but it would not change anything. I still cannot see my web form properly (https://jutne.enketo.kobotoolbox.org/webform - check the Burmese one, the Karen one is not in Unicode yet). Would you share your solution with me?

Thanks a million,

Lisa
