README for ttt (Tibetan Transcript Translator) ============================================== IMPORTANT --------- This Package only supplies the Tibetan Transcript Translator. You must have Sam Sirlin's font(*.mf), font metrics (*.tfm) and tibdef.tex installed! If you don't have Metafont or work on an old LaTeX version, follow the special instructions in INSTALL.HOW. Please look at ... the remarks at the top of the c source code. INSTALL.HOW tttintro.* The documentation supplied with the other two packages. FEATURES -------- This program is able to typeset many syllables which originate from Sanskrit. Tables and inline LaTeX commands are also supported. You can import ACIP transcribed texts into LaTeX. Look at tttintro.* for further info. DISADVANTAGES ------------- More complex command line. The vovels on tsa, tsha and dza are not specially handled and don't look as nice as in the other implementations. The same applies to cu and tsu, which are not confused any more. You will have to remove such workarounds from your texts. THANKS ------ to Jeff Sparkes and Sam Sirlin for their previous implementations, which supplied me the fonts and some good ideas for the ttt program. Beat.Steiner@gseved.admin.ch March 1997

ttt – A Tibetan Transcript Transliterator for LaTeX
The transcriptions work with Sirlin's fonts and macros, but the transcriber manages better support (particularly of ligatures) than other approaches to Tibetan.
