A strong case is made for the standardization of a few Tamil fonts both for official publications
(including school and college books) of the Governments and public display boards (including
hoardings, road signs, name boards of establishments) in countries, where Tamil is (one of) the
official languages of the State. The basic purpose is to guarantee a great recognition
performance for both optical character recognizers and camera based document analysis and
recognition systems. In this internet and mobile era, this committed action is bound to
tremendously increase access to information for all through the search media, as well as boost
the accessibility to all kinds of print information to people with visual disability. With the use of
the ubiquitous smart phones, this also can give immediate access to translation of any Tamil
material (printed or camera captured) to all the valuable tourist and business visitors. If we are
the first in the world to do this, then we can catapult Tamil language to the digital forefront.
