Lorna A. Priest, 2007-09-28
Download "/AbyssinicaSILKeymanKbd.kmp", Keyman keyboard package, 1MB [5072 downloads]

This package contains the same files as AbyssinicaSIL1.0.zip plus a Keyman keyboard. The Keyman keyboard is version 1.1.2. A few minor changes were made to change PUA codepoints to the correct USV. This version contains a fix for the problem of fast typing reordering keystrokes when using Keyman with TSF. The basic effect of this is to make Keyman do all text input using TSF, rather than a mixture of TSF and ordinary keyboard events. If you use  FieldWorks you should upgrade to this version of the keyboard.

This keyboard was developed for keyboarding the Ethiopic Script. For guidelines on who can use Keyman and for downloading, go to:  http://www.tavultesoft.com. The “Abyssinica SIL Unicode” keyboard is designed to work with the Abyssinica SIL font which is a part of this package. Unless you need to use the Private Use Area (PUA) characters in this font you can use this keyboard with any Ethiopic Unicode font.

If you download this package, you must have Keyman already installed. You can just double-click AbyssinicaSILKeymanKbd.kmp to install the keyboard package and font. Once installed, documentation can be found at Start / All Programs / Abyssinica SIL Unicode.
