Justification

There has been a huge drive towards revitalization in the Onondaga community and many digital resources are under development to promote language acquisition in classrooms. An easy-to-use, intuitive keyboard suit would be conducive to allowing the community to get the best use out of their new digital resources.

Existing Resources

  • Android keyboard
    • Android only
    • Unintuitive layout for people used to typing in English
  • Mac/Windows keyboard
    • No documentation
    • A lot of key presses to get to characters with diacritics
    • Can't figure out how to
    • Also unintuitive (b:ñ)

Design goals

  • Intuitive use
  • Supports the orthography in Hanni Woodbury's dictionary
    • Most characters with diacritics match up with their non-diacritic counter-parts
    • All characters with the same diacritic located on the same level
    • ctrl: acute accent, option/alt: ogonek
    • Characters with multiple diacritics accessed by holding down both control and option
  • Cross-platform availability
  • Facilitate typing in both English and Onondaga as much as possible
    • Most (if not all) Onondaga speakers speak English primarily and I'm trying to minimize the inconvenience of switching keyboards

Installation

Installing Keyman

This keyboard suite was designed and implemented using Keyman Developer. In order to use it on your device, you must first install Keyman. Click here for Mac instructions, and here for Windows. For mobile installation, just visit the App Store or Google Play Store.
