Cheat Sheets

Using Unicode Fonts is really easy.  Generally the diacritics (tones, nasals and combos) are added to vowels by a second keystroke.  Some characters like the voiceless L (Ł)  and Glottal (Ɂ) have their own keys.

You can choose from two keyboard layouts for most NWT Dene Languages.  Both layouts are included in the download archive.  Both layouts output the same characters. Install the one that is easiest for you to use for typing. The (wm) set is for those already familiar with the old WinMac keyboard.  The (lg) set is Chris Harvey’s own design.

Here are keycaps cheat-sheets you can print.
