I’ve recently created a Keyman keyboard package for the Shavian alphabet (en-Shaw), using Keyman Developer 126.96.36.199 on Windows 10. This is working well across all devices I’ve tested the keyboards on.
I wanted to create a companion lexical model, and have followed the instructions in the documentation. It is a simple word list lexical model. It builds without any errors. But when I install it on my iOS devices, the lexical model only suggests one word (out of the thousand or so in the list), “𐑻𐑔”. Always that word and no other. There is nothing special about this word in the word list so I’m baffled as to why it is being singled out as the only word for predictive text. The source files for the lexical model can be accessed here.
The keyboard package can be downloaded via this page.
Finally, a small thing, but whenever I type in any Shavian letter into the touchscreen keyboard templates in Developer, the app produces an error message saying it has to close. However, it works fine if I just ignore it and close these messages. Just a minor issue.
Thanks for any help with the lexical model.
