Oh, and Some Good News

Now that Snow Leopard is released for Macs, there is good news on the keyboard front. There’s been a long-standing bug in Mac keyboard support that prevented the creation of decent keyboards for the Deseret Alphabet, keyboard which would let you type 𐐟, not by some obscene and hard-to-remember key chord, but by typing S-h. (Or S-H.)

That bug has finally been fixed, and I have a keyboard I’ve been using which takes advantage of the bug fix. You still have to cure yourself of some old Latin typing habits, but it’s a vast improvement on what went before.

It’s not quite ready for release yet; I need to write up documentation. But as soon as that’s done, I’ll post it somewhere appropriate.


  1. If you can live without documentation, sure. I'll even send you my Shavian keyboard.
