Sgüüx̱s Keyboard Help

This keyboard is designed for the Sgüüx̱s language of the BC Coast region of Canada.

If square boxes are displayed instead of characters when using this keyboard (and in the keyboard layouts below), please read our troubleshooting guide.

  • The special characters of Sgüüx̱s have been assigned to punctuation keys.
  • All accents are typed after the base character: a̱ is typed a then Hyphen -
  • To type the low line use the Hyphen Key — ḵ is typed k then Hyphen -
  • To type the diaeresis accent use the Left-Bracket Key [ - ü is typed u then Left-Bracket [
    • üü can be typed uu then Left-Bracket [
  • To type the underdot use the Backquote Key ` - x̣ is typed x then Backquote `
  • All changed punctuation can type their original value by holding down the Right-Alt or Option key. The Left-Bracket [ is typed Right-Alt+Left-Bracket (Windows) Option+Left-Bracket (Mac).

The following Unicode fonts have been installed on your computer: Aboriginal Sans, Aboriginal Serif. Please use these fonts when typing in your language as they have been specially built to represent your language as accurately as possible.
