My best solution so far for typing Māori vowels (ā, ē, ī, ō, ū) on Android has been to search for words in maoridictionary.co.nz and copy'n'paste them. But this is an ugly hack and if there isn't a more convenient way, that's a problem that needs solving. Today I found maori.typeit.org, which is a slightly less ugly hack, but still far from ideal.
@strypey grammarly keyboard appears to be able to.
@strypey Sorry missed 'free code'
@yojimbo Just before I saw your post, I was idly wondering if the advice given about iThings in the comments here:
... would work on Android too. Turns out it does, on one of my Androids.
The other Android is an Oppo I bought 2nd hand in China. The default English keyboard is a bit more limited, as you'd expect, because it's only intended for times when Chinese users have to use the European alphabet. I still need a liberating solution for that device.
@strypey They don't add anything in particular, so it'll be the current AOSP default.
I picked them because they're still maintaining for the Nexus 4, which is a phone I've needed to resurrect recently and Lineage have dropped it. @lightweight might appreciate that one of their core devs plays Ultimate :-)
@strypey Possibly knowing which Android version people are on might help you identify when the default keyboard became useful :-) Like I said earlier, mine is Android 10.
@abloo F-Droid has lots of keyboard layouts for the Anysoft Keyboard, but I couldn't see the keyboard itself there. Which is weird, because it seems to be free code under an Apache 2.0 license:
Apparently this is a known issue, but the F-Droid crew need help with fixing it?
@strypey don't those options come up if you hold the key? If not see if "Hacker's Keyboard" helps any.
