This keyboard for Mac computers will allow you to write any* BC First Nations language alongside French and English. See below for installation and use instructions!

Please contact me here if there are any corrections that need to be done, or if you have any suggestions!

*– I apologise, this keyboard does not write the Syllabics for Dane-zaa (ᑕᓀ ᖚ), Dakelh (ᑕᗸᒡ) or for Nēhiyawēwin (ᓀᐦᐃᔭᐍᐏᐣ).
