An excellent reference guide for pronouncing 5,000-year-old Devanagari script alphabets.

Swarakshar Pro's in-app auto-renewing subscription will unlock a complete reference guide or handbook for Devanagari alphabet pronunciation and identification.

1. The app includes over 422 Devanagari alphabets with voice-overs available at your fingertips.
2. The app is intelligently colour-coded to differentiate vowels, consonants, and barakhadi (swarakshar) for easier identification and pronunciation.
3. Users can listen to the alphabet's pronunciation with a single tap on the Alphabet Tile app. Holding down the tile will take you to the related alphabet's barakhadi screen.
4. The app displays the properties of each alphabet, including whether it is Vowel/Consonant or Barakhadi. For Barakhadi, it shows construction and localised transcription.
5. We incorporated traditional Alphabet Chart/Varnamala/Aksharmala ideas into modern, interactive touch-enabled iOS technologies
6. Our custom-designed Devanagari Unicode font makes alphabet recognition easier.

Ratings and Reviews

Drusus Maximus ,

Excellent, but note correct usage.

I originally reviewed this app negatively as I did not use it correctly.

A short press on a symbol gives the pronunciation of that symbol. A long press opens up all the variations. This makes the app an excellent reference, and very valuable for someone learning Sanskrit without the aid of a tutor.

In summary, it does exactly what I wanted it to do.

Nice app!

If anyone has an issue with sound, it’s because it uses the ringer volume and not the regular volume that every other app uses. Although that’s a bit strange, the developer was very responsive and solved my issue, and I am happy it is working, now.
It’s a very useful app! Thank you.

Developer Response ,

We have updated the app's behaviour to play voice-overs in silent mode. The same issue was fixed almost two/three months back. Please check at your end and let me know.

No sound

Sound doesn’t work at all on iPad. Looks like this app is only for phone because some other reviewer also mentioned that you have to increase ringtone volume. Sound works perfectly on other apps on same device but not in this app. Defeats the purpose.
