A default Gujarati keyboard layout, simply called Gujarati, is included in Windows. This keyboard is great if the keyboard keys are labeled with Gujarati characters instead of English. You have to learn the layout if you want to use this layout. However, if you use an English keyboard, then you may want to use my Gujarati Phonetic keyboard layout instead. These keyboard layouts work with any Unicode fonts. The synthesis of the keyboard layout and Unicode fonts makes typing in Gujarati far more easier than with other types of fonts.

The simplest characters are the consonants. On the Gujarati Phonetic keyboard layout, the Gujarati or Hindi equivalents correspond to the phonetic English counterpart as best as possible.
The consonants on the Gujarati Phonetic keyboard layout are mapped in the two images below. To use this phonetic layout, you must install the Gujarati Phonetic keyboard layout found here. The three image above include all the consonants of the Gujarati language plus other characters which will be explained later.
If the conjunct is 3 or more consonants, then include a virama between each consonant. The virama key is the single apostrophe key '. The virama key is shown in the image below. However, in some cases the conjunct is represented by a single character.
The table below shows some common conjuncts represented by single characters with their consonant components. The following frequently used conjuncts are mapped to the regular keyboard; hence, you can type them with a single keystroke.
Unicode scripting automatically converts what you type to the correct conjunct form. As a matter of fact, any time you want to see the virama without have it joined, you can type the ZWNJ in between.
