Read Telugu news sites in transliterated English

Although I manage to speak decent Telugu (one of the twenty-two scheduled languages of India & spoken by over 74 million native speakers), I have to confess I'm poor at reading it (Why? That's another story). So for long, I wished there was a way to read Eenadu (the largest circulated Telugu news daily in Andhra Pradesh with over 13.5 million readers) in English. My wish has been granted, thanks to a Firefox extension called Padma, a Transformer for Indic Scripts, built by Nagarjuna Venna and Harshita Vani

Padma can understand a variety of fonts used in the popular Telugu-based news websites & convert them to RTS (Rice Transliteration Standard for Roman Transliteration of Telugu)

Here are the steps to read content from the online version of Eenadu (or Andhra Jyothy, Andhra Prabha, Vaartha newspapers) in transliterated English
1) Install the Padma extension in Firefox & restart the browser
2) On the Eenadu site, select content you wish to read in English
 3) Right click & choose the option Padma & then Transform to RTS
