Google Script Converter transliterates between Indian languages

If you can speak & understand one of 11 Indian languages (Bengali, Gujarati, Hindi, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Punjabi, Sanskrit, Tamil, Telugu and Urdu) but cannot read in that language, Google Script Converter can help you out by transliterating it into a language among them that you can read or to English. So let's say you are a Hindi speaker living in Hyderabad who can understand Telugu but cannot read local news in an online Telugu newspaper like Eenadu. To start reading Telugu in Hindi, English or whichever of the other  Indian languages supported by the tool, you have to copy a site's content & paste it within the text-area in Script Converter.

This is a great tool for those trying to learn new Indian languages. To take this a step further, I wish there is a text to speech tool that can work well for Indian languages. I found that regular text to speech tools can speak out English words properly but not words in Indian languages transliterated to English.

Try it out: Eenadu in English
