Writing Burushaski with Roman-based letters:

We have added an instruction how to write the diacritics in Burushaski based on Roman letters with the Burrom 1, 2, or 3 keyboards, and how to install these (Burrom 3 is the current version). These leave the decision about orthrography to the language community, but facilitate interim writing on Windows computers, until something more comprehensive is on the market. The link to the installation files is at the bottom of this page, However, if it does not work, please request access to the Burrom keyboards after downloading the installation instruction from info@burushaski-ls.com by giving your email address.
