This was from a PM to a site admin (with minor formatting)
I have a question, is it anyway [that] Keyman Developer can create a window of possibility of words or of the characters that show the character to type next, just like it shows in the editor of Keyman Developer itself, or do I have to use another kind of developer to do it.
As I study the Keyman Developer’s document, I don’t see anywhere show of how to do it. I like to have it on my keyboard app. If it’s possible I like someone please show me how.
For the mobile apps (Keyman for Android and Keyman for iPhone and iPad), it is possible to incorporate a Keyman dictionary (“lexical-model” or “predictive text”) to provide word suggestions. The same Keyman Developer tool that creates keyboards can also be used to create these dictionaries.
Here’s a screenshot of a Tamil keyboard with the word suggestions (black banner) above it
There are some video tutorials how to create that (See Day 3, Day 4)
The online guide for creating a lexical-model is also available at
Note: This feature is currently not available for desktop keyboards (Windows, macOS, Linux)
