RMS Visited MIT - Chennai

I recorded the RMS speech infront of the huge speaker inside the Rajam Hall, (MIT Chennai) using a Olympus Digital voice Recorder (DM-1) at 12KHz sampling rate. Since the input signal itself was so noisy you can expect the same in recorded speech. DM-1 stores it in .DSS format (Digital Speech Standard). Later I converted it into WAV format and then to OGG format. Dr.P.Sriram (Asso.Prof., Aero Dept., IIT Madras) introduced the speaker. You can download both the speeches in OGG format.

  • Dr.P.Sriram Intro Speech   Recording Length (min:sec): 5:18 -- File Size 1.2MB (approx)
  • RMS Speech on Free Software and the GNU/Linux Operating System   Recording Length (min:sec): 150:01 -- File Size 36MB (approx).   (if you need this file email me at mksarav at gmail)

Tamil fonts for GNU/Linux

TABAkaram Tamil font for GNU/Linux

Eversince I started using Akaram Tamil Font in GNU/Linux, i liked it very much. Hence I created a modified version of Akaram Tamil Font for TAB encoding.

TSCII (v1.7) Akaram Tamil font for GNU/Linux

Since TSCII moved from v1.6 to v1.7, I modified the Akaram Tamil Font for the new encoding (which duplicates ikaram at slot 0xFE).

Note: When i uploaded these files first (5th April 2002), i forgot to notice a case mismatch of file name in fonts.dir file included in tscakaram-tsc-1.7.tar.gz. The very next day i corrected this, and uploaded the corrected version here. Sorry if you have downloaded on the very first day you need to download it again.
