India is a country rich with 22 official spoken languages, 13 official and 10 major scripts. Apart from the languages and scripts taught in schooling, there is no exposure to a new language or a script. Many times, people speak the language but the associated script is not recognised. It would be beneficial if one can recognise at least one new script apart from what is taught academically (schools, college). Previous researchers have shown that the best age for learning new things is early childhood.
While learning words, conjuncts play an important part. Many times, consonants take completely new form while they are formed in conjuncts. All such things are taught in the same rote learning format. If these things are taught in a playful manner, children will enjoy as well as learn.
This project aims to provide a solution for easy learning through a touch base game for learning conjunct and word formation in Indian language script. I have mapped this game on the Devanagari script (Hindi). With the combination of sound and letter-form, a script will be taught. The initial part will before recognition of Devanagari script to children and then conjunct formation through a story. The target audience would be 8 years and above where they know recognition of the Devanagari script and some prior knowledge of conjuncts.
