  • TYPING SYLLABICS

  • Author / Creator
    Houle, Justin R
  • I have created a custom keyboard for Western Plains Cree syllabics based on a symmetrically square layout. It is called the Star Chart Keyboard and currently runs on Apple iOS devices. It allows for previously difficult to access syllabics characters to be typed digitally in as few steps as possible and its culturally inspired design assists in language learning. It has generally been complex and frustrating to type in Cree syllabics online, and this keyboard will make it easier for people to use the writing system in a wide range of contexts.
