I am trying to use Bengali writing product Avro Keyboard but since it uses Unicode by default so working with Adobe products like Photoshop, PageMaker, etc… are not working at all.

When I change the mode to ANSI then AVRO works but I also have to change the font to ANSI coded font (Unicode fonts dont work). Now it will be very kind if someone help me with any one of them, please I really need the answer:

  1. Collection of Bengali ANSI coded fonts (which I searched but unsuccessful to find any).
  2. Method to convert these Unicode fonts to ANSI fonts (if its possible, I don’t know).
  3. A workaround to use them on Adobe products and still using the Unicode fonts.

  • There are some ANSI fonts available on the app's site, did you bother to try them?

  • Yes, i have checked that already and with just 2 fonts installed which look just the same, its same as having nothing. Hope you understand thats why i asked for the other two options if possible. Its so frustrating Commented Jan 27, 2013 at 19:11

Windows does not have an ANSI Bengali codepage. If your applications do not support Unicode, you won’t be able to display Bengali text in them.
