The new Finnish Multilingual Keyboard extends the capabilities of the current Finnish standard keyboard. No new keyboard hardware is required. The new characters are created using diacritical marks and the AltGr key.
It is intended for easy typing of various languages including Finnish, Swedish, Northern Sámi, Inari Sámi, Skolt Sámi, Southern Sámi, Lule Sámi, Danish, Norwegian, and Romany as spoken in Finland. We are also trying to accommodate easy entry of names in other languages with Latin characters. The most important additions for Finnish are š and ž, as well as en dash “–“.
