The Tamil keyboard labels conform tothe Tamil keyboard layout in Windows XP. The labels are printed on clear Lexan®so the original key legend shows through; this allows you to add Tamil labels toyour existing keyboard so that it becomes a bilingual keyboard (Tamil) and theoriginal language of your keyboard). The labels are available in blue letters onclear labels (for beige and light colored keyboards) and white letters on clear labels(for dark colored keyboards). This language is supported in Windows Vista andXP; other versions of Windows will require an Input Method Editor (IME) fromMicrosoft or third-party software.
Tamil labels are a very economicaloption for creating a bilingual Tamil keyboard. The language labels use an easypeel-and-stick method to install. They will not damage the original keyboard key. The letters are printed on the underside ofthe Tamil labels so that the lettering will not wear out. This affords you withmany years of durable use.

How to Type in Tamil in Windows
The AltGr Key
Many languages include more characters than canbe typed on a standard computer keyboard. To solve this problem, additionalcharacters may be assigned to the right AltGr key (the right Alt key) and/or theShifted AltGr key. In Europe, the right Alt key is referred to as the AltGr key.In the United States, it is merely the right Alt key. It is important to notethat the left Alt key cannot be used as the AltGr key.
Characters that require the AltGr key appear to theleft in the DataCal labels (see illustration to the left). On the number keys,the AltGr characters are centered at the bottom of the label. Shifted AltGrkeys are centered at the top of the label. For alpha keys, the AltGrcharacters are in the lower left corner of the label. Shifted AltGr characters(if different from the lower case AltGr characters), are centered at the top ofthe label.
