PostSubject: OLD NORSE KEYBOARD LAYOUT!   Sun Aug 15, 2010 11:54 pm

I have just scripted an Old Norse keyboard layout... it even contains Ǫ. But since most fonts don't have that, the standard is Ö. Odinn

filefactory.com norroena.zip

There are three installation packages... depends on which version of Windows you have... but only one of them will work so just try all three untill it installs... then you should have NO - Norwegian Bokmal as a keyboard language.
It's not for Bokmal at all... but NO can also stand for Norse. :P

I've included a layout image which should give you a clue as to what does what... the grey characters are with Alt Gr.

Any problems... just come to me for help. ^_^

This is great! I just have a question before downloading. Will this "replace" my standard norwegian keys Æ, Ø and Å? Because that would be kind of impractical for me Razz Or will it just add the ON-letters as an alternative, like say if I hold "alt" or "alt gr"?

Thanks for the help! I'm such a töluvölva-idiot pig

Well the Old Norse keyboard has Æ, Ø and Å already. Smile
But they'd probably be in a different place to where they are on a standard Norsk keyboard.
But this keyboard won't replace your default.
When you install it, it will be loaded to your keyboard-layout-list but it shouldn't change your default
unless you ask it to. Then you can use your Norsk keyboard for everything you want, but anytime you want
to write in Old Norse, you usually just have to press Alt and Shift and it will swap to Old norse. Odinn
Then just press Alt and Shift to go back to Norsk. Unless you already have other keyboard layouts in your list,
in which case it will just cycle through them.

One point though, since computers don't recognize Old Norse as a language USED with computers, Rolling Eyes
I've had to script the keyboard as an alternate Norwegian Bokmal keyboard... which means that it has the initials
NO, so you won't be able to tell which keyboard you're using unless you click on your keyboard settings, or start typing. :P

Good luck! I'm happy to help with any keyboard questions, because it's the only keyboard I use, so I'm very used to it by now. Very Happy

That's brilliant! Thank you so much for the help and the patience Smile

I can't download the file though, as the link seems to have been removed? --> this is where I end up: filefactory.com norroena.zip
