IPA Unicode Windows Keyboards - old versions

Lorna Evans, 2014-02-26

Back to Current Versions of Keyboards

IPA Unicode Keyman Keyboard

Old downloads

IPA Unicode 1.3

Beginning with version 1.1.4, this keyboard 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 version includes support for Unicode 6.1 codepoint for U+A7F9  MODIFIER LETTER SMALL LIGATURE OE. It also includes support for U+2205  EMPTY SET, U+25CC  DOTTED CIRCLE (as a "holder" for diacritics) and for U+030D  COMBINING VERTICAL LINE ABOVE (for syllabic where the base character has a descender).

IPA MSKLC Keyboard

US Keyboard Layout

This keyboard uses The Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator (MSKLC):  http://www.microsoft.com/globaldev/tools/msklc.mspx

It was designed to be similar to SIL's IPA Unicode Keyman Keyboard, in that the keystrokes follow a similar layout. In many cases keystrokes are merely reversed. That is, instead of typing n> to get a U+014B , you would type >n. This system is not always possible to maintain using MSKLC since the Keyman keyboard often used more than two keystrokes and this is not allowed using MSKLC. Please read IPA Unicode 5.1 (ver 1.2) MSK.pdf (in the download package) for installation instructions and the keyboard layout. Make sure that you reboot after installing the keyboard.

This keyboard is based on the US English keyboard layout. If you are using a French or German keyboard (or something else), it should still work. You will need to relearn where keys are though. The key layout on page 4 of the documentation will help you.

Note

The keyboard in its present state is specific to the “Doulos SIL” and "Charis SIL" fonts, in that it references characters in the private use area. In future releases of Doulos SIL and Charis SIL, a number of these characters are expected to appear in standard positions according to the newest  Unicode specification, and the keyboard (and encodings of any documents using those characters) will have to be changed accordingly. This note does not, of course, affect standard (non-PUA) Unicode IPA characters. The keyboard supports up to Unicode 5.1.
