Welcome to Arichuvadi
India is a country of immense linguistic diversity. We have about 35 major languages and hundreds
of minor languages. There is a huge volume of literature - both written and oral, ancient and modern.
But, for some reason we Indians have been reluctant to teach our languages to others. There is very little
material, either offline or online for learning Indian languages. This effort of ours attempts to fill this
gap. In true FOSS tradition we are starting small and will evolve the software according to demands and
feedback. We now have partial alphabets in 3 languages and have started putting up lessons. We invite
interested people to come forward and add alphabets and lessons. Please contact us at lawgon at thenilgiris
dot com if you are interested.
In order to view the language you choose you should install the appropriate fonts for the language. The
sounds are in .ogg format, which is an open source format. You need an .ogg plugin for your browser. You can
get an ogg plugin <a href="http://www.fsf.org/resources/formats/playogg">here</a> This
is tested using Mozilla Firefox and konqueror on Mandriva, Fedora Core, OpenSuse linux distributions.
Older distributions may not be able to play .ogg files. If it does not work on Internet Explorer please do
not complain to us.
