Notes about Gujarati romanization table.

For English romanization of Indic Ginans, we use Gujarati romanization table from The Library of Congress with following necessary changes.

For ચ We use ch instead of ca,

For છ chh instead of ch

For શ sh instead of  śa

For ષ ṣ instead of sha

For ◌̇, If nasal dot is followed by any letter other then પ (p), ફ (ph), બ (b), ભ (bh), મ (m), then dot is pronounced as nasal sound of ન ṅ. Letter+, instead of letter+(આંખ  āṅkh, હું huṅ).
  If nasal dot is followed by letters પ (p), ફ (ph), બ (b), ભ (bh), મ (m), than dot is pronounced as nasal sound of મ . Letter+instead of  letter+ṃ. (જંપુદીપ  jaṁpudīp, સાંભળો  sāṁbhaḷo)

For ઝ z if this letter is in word of Islami or Ismaili terminology (ઝીકર Zikar)

For ફ  if this letter is in word of Islami or Ismaili terminology (ફરમાન Farmān)

We also added three letters ત્ર tra, ક્ષ ksha, જ્ઞ gṅa which we see in our Ginān books.
