How to use our Sanskrit Alphabet Tutor
The letters are listed on a chart in transliterated font. Hovering with the mouse over a letter will highlight the letter and show it in Devanagari. In the settings window you can change this priview mode so that basic information about the letter will pop-up on mouse hover and/or the sound of the letter will play automatically.
Clicking a letter opens a large view of the letter as well as a few control buttons – or links. Clicking one link will open an area for viewing an animation of writing the letter. Click on another link will show the letter printed in Devanagari, another will show a discription of the basic qualities and classification of the letter, and another one will play the sound of the letter.
You can also use the drawing pad to practice writing – using the mouse or a digital writing pad. It may take some time to get used to writing with the mouse but it can be fun – and it saves paper! You can change the slate color, pen color and width and trace the letter animation.
