Dane-Z̲aa Z̲áágéʔ Keyboard Help

This keyboard is designed for the Dane-Z̲aa Z̲áágéʔ language of the Western Subarctic region of Canada.

Desktop Layout

Combining accents are located on the standard / and \ keys. Type an accent after a vowel to add it on the vowel. If you've typed the wrong accent, just type the correct accent to replace it.

  • á = a then /
  • ǎ = a then \
  • â = a then Shift-\

By holding the ALT key, you can return to the standard US English keyboard value of any modified key (such as p, r, q, v, x, and various punctuation). Shift-Alt will give you the standard English shifted value of the modified key (such as P, R, Q, V, Z, etc).
