LaserSalish in Unicode includes two keyboard layouts. The keyboards are phonetic, based on the US keyboard, and allow easy input of all characters and diacritics supported by the fonts.

The first keyboard layout takes advantage of the OpenType layout features built into the fonts for the most logical, intuitive input possible. Input order is letter, accent, accent. The letter with its associated diacritics is built up automatically as you type, with all diacritics perfectly spaced. The included keyboard chart shows which keystrokes the user must type.

The second keyboard layout works with any Unicode-compatible application and uses dead key input to type letters with their associated diacritics. The user first types the dead key (representing the accent) and nothing appears to happen on screen. Then the user types the letter and the accented letter appears in the file.

Notes bulletThese fonts are compatible with the Windows version of LaserSalish in Unicode. No conversion of files is necessary when transferring files to Windows if your applications are fully Unicode-aware and compatible fonts are installed on both systems. If you use the OpenType input method your Windows colleague must be using compatible software. Otherwise, both of you should use the dead key input method.
