Note: Approximants aka {a.wag}-aksharas were classified as consonants. However, since they also show vowel-like characters, they are listed separately (as of 110318), even though they still occupy the consonant table.

Note: Nasals, r1c5 {nga.}, r2c5 {a.}, r3c5 {Na.}, r4c5 {na.}, and r5c5 {ma.} form a special group with some vowel-like characters similar to those of the approximants. But their grouping is vertical (from column c5), because of which they are treated as a sub-class of the {wag}-consonants.

Note: You must load the AHTD (American Heritage Talking Dictionary) separately and you will be able to use it independently from other files. To hear the sound clips, the CD must be in the CD bay.

Note to digitizer/Devanagari transcriber : you can copy and paste the following:
Ā ā Ē ē Ī ī Ō ō Ū ū
Ḍ ḍ Ḥ ḥ Ḷ ḷ Ḹ ḹ Ṁ ṁ Ṃ ṃ Ṅ ṅ Ṇ ṇ Ṛ ṛ Ṝ ṝ Ś ś Ṣ ṣ Ṭ ṭ ɕ ʂ
Instead of Devanagari ः {wic~sa.} use "colon" :
Root sign √
Sanskrit-Devanagari : श ś [ɕ]; ष ṣ [ʂ]; स s [s];
Undertie in Dev transcription: ‿ U203F as in ‿udaka see Mac-Cologne TIL-p002.htm
