System Requirements

  • Given that the application runs via an internet browser, a functioning browser program is essential (internet connection is not required). The functionality and the appearance of the program will vary with the browser and version. Internet Explorer 8+ and comparable browsers should enable the application to function as intended. Earlier versions may produce none or partial functionality.
  • System requirements in terms of the speed, memory etc. for the application itself is insignificant compared to the requirement of the browser program and Sinhala language support.
  • The layout of the keyboard was arranged with a minimum screen resolution of 1024 x 768. Display settings of a lower resolution is likely to produce irregular results. In such cases consider an adjustment of the browser window zoom feature and workspace setup in the Sinhala Keyboard.

MS Windows Vista and subsequent releases of Windows have Sinhala language support.
