Scripts Handled by the IITM Software
  The scripts indicated in the table below are supported in the Multilingual Editor application developed at IITM. The names of these scripts have been fixed for use in the Editor and these names are also given in the table.

  It may be kept in mind that the software applications based on the IITM scheme of representing text, allow proper linguistic processing in all these scripts (languges associated with the scripts). 

  The Multilingual Editor provides automatic transliteration across all these. The IPA script is based on the Roman Diacritics scheme standardized by the National Library, Kolkota. It is actually a subset of the characters specified in the International Phonetic Alphabet. All these scripts conform to one sorting order, compatible with Sanskrit and the South Indian Languages.

 The link associated with each script will take you to a page displaying the basic aksharas and the matras used in the script. The linked page may also include additional details on the rules followed for writing the conjuncts in each script.
