Choosing a Password
Your password should ideally be more than 7 characters long as longer passwords are more secure. It is highly recommended that you choose an unique password for each site that you go to. Some people choose a phrase like "WhereTheMindIsWithoutFear" (a famous Tagore poem) so that they can easily remember their password. In the Welcome email, only the first and last two characters are shown for security reasons.

Each user needs to set up an unique identity on the system. Since we want to make sure that we can easily communicate with users, we have chosen an user's Email ID as the most practical and useful unique ID. The user's Name (separated as First Name and Last Name) is useful when communicating with them. Finally, we want to save the geographical location of a user to be sensitive to their time zone when communicating by phone or streaming video that may be useful for the learning process.
Please register by filling in the Registration form. Make sure that the email ID you enter is easily accessible to you. All system communications will be sent to this email. If an invalid email is entered, the registration will be immediately deleted.
The password should be more than 8 characters. Longer passwords are more secure. It is highly recommended that you choose an unique password for each site that you visit. Some people choose a phrase like "WhereTheMindIsWithoutFear" (a famous Tagore poem) so that they can easily remember their password. The password is not displayed on any online screen. In the Welcome email, only the first and last two characters are shown for security reasons. If you forget the password, you will have to register again, and all your usage history will be lost.

successful registration, document your Profile and to provide a guide to the various capabilities of the site. Please save this email to remember your credentials. A database record is created on the supriyosen.net server to identify you for subsequent visits.
A registered user can use multiple devices and only needs to login from each device as necessary. For example, I use an iMac, an iPad, and an iPhone. For testing, I also have set up a Windows 10 and a Linux Ubuntu 14 under VirtualBox, an App that runs under Mac OS. Only one registration is required.
Since Registration sets up your profile, you should Register again if you want to change your Password, Name or Location. If you want to change your Email ID, you need to register as a new user. The history of your activities can be manually coordinated by sending an email to email@example.com.
The registration record on the server will be removed after six months of inactivity or on your emailed request. Registered users will get an activity status report by email twice a month.

Bangla words are written almost like the way they are spoken. So, if you wanted to write the Bangla for My. which is amar in Bangla, you would write আ ম া র = আমার.
This, of course, is significantly easier than English, where differently written words like "cease" and "seize" have a similar sound.
Bangla spelling, does have a spelling challenge in a different way. This is because some different letters of the Bangla alphabet are pronounced the same way in modern Bangla usage. For example, in the alphabet you will see two "naw" sounds - donte-naw ন and moddheno-naw ণ. As an example, one naw is used for কণাparticle and another naw is used for কেনwhy.
Why do we still have two naw sounds? Well, Bangla evolved (circa 1000 AD) from Magadhi Prakrit and Pali, which in turn, developed from Sanskrit. Literary Bengali borrows many words from Classical Sanskrit, preserving spelling while adapting pronunciation to that of Bangla.
Here is a list of letters with the same sound.
Which letter to use for correct spelling?
Writing Bangla Text-the right words, the correct spelling
So what tools do you need to write the best Bangla you are capable of? In fact, there are 2 tools you need:
Using the Right Word You need a reference dictionary, ideally with Bangla words with English meaning. Such a dictionary will let you search for the best word in English or Bangla. A reference dictionary provides many meanings for each word you search for.
The Correct Spelling In a lot of cases, you know the Bangla word. You need to be guided so that you end up with the correct spelling. For this purpose, you need a fast glossary, with each Bangla word correctly spelt and having a short English description. The user is merely verifying a word they know, so speed of access is an important characteristic.
