Here is an addition for those who have problems with VirtualKeyboard (VK).
1. When replying to a message wait until the web page loads fully (check the bottom "status line" of a browser). Sometimes the server is very slow so you have to wait up to one minute for a page to fully load. If you don't wait for it, pressing on [Turn Lakota Keyboard ON] button may have no results.
2. The best browser for the forum is Firefox (Chrome going next). - VK as well as other software, as interactive quizzes, NLD Online, are least buggy and fastest under Firefox and not Internet Explorer. Opera has problems with VirtualKeyboards as well as web-fonts (at least previous versions).
3. The most frequent trouble with VK is inability to type accents (áéíóú) and glottal stops (tʼeʼ). VK uses apostrophe ( ' ) for inserting glottal stop or modifying vowels to become accented. Usually the physical keyboard key adjacent to Enter key produces apostrophe upon typing it (red square left to Enter key:
However some national keyboards have other keyboard layouts, most often the alternative apostrophe place is on an upperleft key (see the pic.). You have two ways out:
a) either find the apostrophe key on your physical keyboard manually and press it next time you want to type accents or glottals
b) or play with the dropping selection list on VK (see pic) and choose the national keyboard layout that would fix the problem. Most often the UK and German options fix the problem and you'll have the "traditional" place for apostrophe key - left to Enter key.
I helped the Lakota language by donating to the audio dictionary project (Donation #: 841496). Can you help too?
