IEEE has established a new Working Group (WG) after the first project approval by the recently formed IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) India Standards Interest Group (SIG). Once the standard is developed and adopted, IEEE P1908.1 will make it possible for the first time to display Indian language characters dynamically on smart phones and tablet computers.

IEEE P1908.1TM – Virtual Keyboard Standard for Indic Languages is being launched with an inaugural meeting via teleconference scheduled for 25 January 2012, which is open to all by phone.
