Shavian has a problem with keyboards. the current supply is very low, and it is fairly difficult to fabricate an entirely new keyboard from scratch. i hope to fix this sad reality through the power of friendship, cool images, and my free time!
oh yeah, and a NEW KEYBOARD for android through Multikey based on u/Ruais's 12 key keyboard!
my personal orthography includes a diamond operator to indicate special circumstances such as a nonstandard shortening, additional CJK quote brackets, and most importantly, a brand new optimized-but-familiar layout compared to the previous iteration!
the above is said Multikey keyboard with a modified shavian layout that i use for inputting shavian on mobile. find out the overall basics here (archived) or in the downloads page.
there are several changes compared to u/Ruais's keyboard, most of them subtle and mnemonic in nature.
i have updated the positions of some characters to be more symmetrical
i've tried to incorperate as many small mnemonic features as i can keep track of! one of them is how 𐑶 and 𐑹 are on the same side of the keyboard because they both use the ɔ sound, and it reflects the similarity between 𐑬's /aʊ/ and 𐑸's /ɑː(r)/ on the other side! several changes like that have been made in an attempt to speed up the use of the keyboard.
if you have any ideas of your own, feel free to contact me (note to self, try to make a talk page)
download it here!
i also made a keyboard for linux!
i made several versions of the above keyboard to be used in Linux, probably only for x11 (i'm not sure because i've never laid a finger on wayland lol) which can also be found in the downloads page where it should be renamed from shaw.txt to shaw and stored as /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/shaw
