Devanagari Unicode Input for Mac OS X To install the keyboard layout and icon for Mac OS X, please follow these instructions:
Download the Romanized_Keyboard_Layout_For_Mac.zip and extract the two files 'NepaliRomanized.1.keylayout' and 'NepaliRomanized.1.icns' from the zip file.
Quit all running applications.
Go to the Macintosh HD (or whatever your system hard drive is named) and find the following folder path: System / Library / Keyboard Layouts.
Drag the two files that you have just extracted into the Keyboard Layouts folder.
You will see a dialogue box which reads: "the item…could not be moved because "Keyboard Layouts" cannot be modified", click Authenticate.
You will need to be logged in as the administrator to have the permission to Authenticate.
Restart the computer.
Open TextEdit and change the keyboard layout to NepaliRomanized (either by using the Apple menu bar on the top right of the desktop or by opening System Preferences / International / Input Menu and selecting NepaliRomanized.
You should be able to type in Nepali using a Romanized keyboard layout which can be viewed by clicking here (GIF / JPEG).
You will need at least Mac OS X. 2 (Jaguar) but preferably OX. 3 (Panther) to be able to view and input Devanagari Unicode on your computer. You will also need to have the Asian language kit and fonts installed which came on the install discs for the operating system. We strongly recommend using the free OS X browser Safari. The former requires no special adjustment to view Unicode pages, while Internet Explorer is not smooth for Mac OSX.
