Hi Elias,

Unfortunately we've been asked this question before: Paltalk does not support Amharic -- you could try to ask the Paltalk developers to add support for Amharic (Unicode).

There are other communication tools available that do support Amharic, including Skype, Google Chat, Live Messenger, Yahoo Messenger, and nearly all web-based chat tools.

I've just tested Paltalk Express and it appears that Paltalk Express will work with Amharic and Keyman Desktop just fine. Paltalk Express is a web-based version of Paltalk with fewer features but may give you the functions you need.

It may also be that Paltalk will work with Amharic if you are running Windows Vista or Windows 7, but I have not tested this. Unfortunately, it certainly won't work in Windows XP, and this is due to limitations in the Paltalk software.
