Justification

The characters in the Miskito language closely resemble the Spanish alphabet, with a few exceptions. There are a few accented characters we needed to capture in our keyboard layout. Specifically, we need to capture characters with (ˆ), (´), (˜), and (`) accents on the vowels (a, e, i, o, u/A, E, I, O, U). In our designed layout, we began using the standard keyboard layout used in English. As vowels and consonants are the same between English and Miskito, we figured the frequency distribution of letters might be similar. Additionally, users are accustomed to the English keyboard layout, so minimizing the number of changes we make to accommodate the Miskito language will make it easier for them to make the transition.
