Yá'át'ééh, welcome to the best and only Diné/Eng Keyboard of its kind! We offer a fully featured keyboard, targeted to native speakers as well as those who want to learn. This keyboard gives word completion suggestions to what is being typed in both languages at the same time! Don't want to do both, easily switch to English only, Navajo only, or no suggestions at all.
We offer many ways to customize the experience. Full explanations and details can be found on our website. However, the default settings are intended to have the keyboard working without any changes.
We currently offer thousands of words, and we continually add to the word base. This keyboard will easily be the most comprehensive Navajo keyboard ever created. Future versions will improve and optimize the word completion algorithm, making the keyboard better and have quicker response time.
The keyboard now offers the Study option. This is our latest feature to help learn the languages. The keyboard will help you study word lists in a flash card, multiple choice, or spelling style! Check the website for details.
With support, we can continue to improve this keyboard and together we can help to preserve and teach Diné Bizaad in a way never before done. :)
We appreciate all those who are and have been supporting us! We will continually strive to improve and make the keyboard better. 🙏🏽
