The layout

The Mmuock keyboard layout

Note: the above layout might look different on mobile devices. In particular, some non-alphanumeric keys (such as ~) might be hidden.

Using the keyboard

  1. Please refer to the diagram of the keyboard layout in the preceding section.
  2. Some keys on the keyboard can be used to produce more than one kind of character. For example, the n key can be used to produce both "n" and "ŋ".
  3. The default character that a key produces, is shown on the left hand side of the key and is in black colour; for example, "n". The other characters that can also be produced by the key, are shown on the right hand side of the key and are written in brown colour.
  4. To produce the letters that are in brown colour: first press the special key /, release it, then press the key that has the brown letter.

Producing accent marks

Using one keystroke

This applies to the first 4 accent marks: ~ (tilde),  ¯ (macron), ´ (acute), and ` (grave).
