About this app

The Cameroon Keyboard is a virtual keyboard maintained by SIL Cameroon. It allows the user to type in any language of Cameroon that follows the GACL (General Alphabet of Cameroonian Languages). You can now send text messages and use social media in your language from your phone or tablet! It has been available on Windows® for nearly a decade, but is now available on Android®!

Between the 7th and 9th of March 1979, the National Committee for the Unification and Harmonisation of the Alphabets of Cameroon Languages decided on a Unified Alphabet for the orthographies of Cameroonian languages. The choices follow the Roman alphabet used in English and French, but with the addition of extra letters from the International Phonetic Alphabet.

Since that time, SIL Cameroon has been entrusted to maintain virtual keyboards to allow users to type in the local languages of Cameroon. This app is a product of this continuing research.

I downloaded and tried to activate this keyboard but got a warning saying " this keyboard may be able to collect all the text i type including passwords and credit card numbers" i can only use the app if I consent to this warning. This puts users at risk . More should be done for user data protection.

A good app. The only problem I find there is the speed. When one migrates from one keypboard to the other, it takes lots of time.

Work great. I use this app to write in Mə̀dʉ̂mbὰ language. It fits in as an optional keyboard to pick from. If you are using it too. Let us know your experience with it.
