iPad Aboriginal Keyboard


Yän is an iPad keyboard designed for the aboriginal languages of Australia.  Some aboriginal languages (Aṉangu Yolŋu,  Njébbana and others) have complex orthographies and until recently it was very difficult to enter their special characters on apple devices. However Yän allows an iPad user to quickly keyboard these characters and straightaway export to the clipboard, mail, Facebook, iMessage and Twitter.

Yän is the brainchild of John Greatorex with AuSIL and others contributing to its creation. Demografix pty ltd is the software developer.
