Script that reads 22 Indian languages to help people with dyslexia
A team of researchers at IIT-Madras is creating a script called ‘Bharati’, which will help to read every Indian language.
As per the team, ‘Bharati’ will be a single script that will cover 22 official Indian languages and 1652 dialects.
The idea is to improve domestic tourism, reduce script barriers and make the study of Indian languages simpler.
The new script can also give a new hope for dyslexic students as the characters chosen are very simple, logical and easy to read and learn.
Researchers plan to use ‘Bharati’ as an additional script and not as a replacement for the existing languages.
