Jokes aside. The best KB for printing in navi.

But if its crazy thing, what is an alternative then?

Many of us use US-International. It's arguably faster than kxwerty, but it's all in the preference :-\

I noticed the links in the OP are incorrect again. At least, link for the Windows .zip file should be "http://tirea.learnnavi.org/download/navkb6.zip" not "http://tirea.learnnavi.org/material/download/navkb6.zip".

I love this keyboard. It sounds like Tirea thinks there's a better way than this old thing, but if there is, I'm not aware of it! Love it!  :palulukan: :)

yeah, I dropped the material folder in the new design some time ago. Fixing the link.

Also

Yeah it's quite popular to just use some built-in extended or International keyboard layout. I assure you that if you touch type qwerty and recognize what has been substituted with this keyboard, then it is definitely faster than US-intl for typing Na'vi. The only thing is, the kxwerty keyboard is only good for typing in Na'vi currently. If you try to type in English, hilarious things happen. ;D

The idea behind this keyboard is, one keystroke, one Na'vi phoneme. Even digraphs. Which means the word kxì takes two keystrokes on kxwerty (q j) and it takes five keystrokes on US-intl (k x alt ` i) which is amazingly annoying (to me :D)


EDIT: Also, if anyone has any suggestions to improve this kbl, let me know. :) There has not been a new version in many years
