    My personal solution to this problem is that I type using the Colemak layout anyway, and that has the ability to type almost any accented letter you like built right in. But learning an entirely new layout just to type in Esperanto is perhaps a bit of an extreme solution. Instead, here are four more realistic options: Apparently there is a setting in recent versions called "Adding Esperanto circumflexes (supersigno)", although I have not tested this and couldn't say how it works. The Esperanto-specific layout, which replaces non-Esperanto letters with Esperanto letters, as mentioned by @kashtanulo above. The US-International layout. This is the standard US keyboard layout (which is basically the same as the UK layout, except that @ and " are swapped, and a few other punctuation characters are moved around), but it also has "dead keys" for typing international characters. To type a hat, you press shift+6, which doesn't produce any output until you then press the letter you want to add the hat to (to get a ^ character, I believe you have to press shift+6 twice, but I may be wrong on that). So shift+6 then C produces Ĉ. Ŭ is altgr+shift+9 then U. Apparently this version of the US-International layout is Linux-specific, and the Windows version doesn't have Esperanto characters (although not having a Windows machine I can't confirm that). In the keyboard preferences you can select a "compose key". This can be enabled on any layout, so you don't even have to learn the differences between a UK and US keyboard to make it work. You can select what you want your compose key to be - the right Windows key is a popular choice, given that it has basically no use in Linux. To type Ĉ, you press compose+shift+6, then C (so same as for US-International, but with compose added), and similar for the other hatted letters. To type Ŭ, you press compose+U, then U. I think the fourth option is probably the most sensible, as it doesn't make any changes to the keyboard in normal use. You still have a standard UK layout that works exactly as normal, unless you hold the compose key. Hope that makes sense - let me know if you need any further details. :)

    We have a resources section which contains info on how to type Esperanto's special letters. I don't have a Mac so don't know the best ways. And that means I can't actually write this part of the site! If you're a Mac owner, what's your preferred solution? If possible, please give me a little more detail than "Use x". If you can explain it using steps and images, that'd be great even better. You might even get your answer placed here!

    Saluton. Mi estas ano de EAB, kaj mi kreis konton en ĉi tiu retpaĝaro. Mia profilo listiĝas kiel "Retejuzanto". Kiel mi aldonas la informon, ke mi havas EAB-anecon, por ke mi aperas sur la mapo? // I'm a member of EAB, and I've created an account on this site. My profile is listed as "Site User". How do I add the information that I have EAB membership, so that I appear on the map? Multan Dankon. Mark

    Ho, iel mi tute maltrafis ĝin. Dankon. Ŝajnas, ke ĝi funkciis.

    Saluton, Mark. Ĉu vi estas aŭ ne estas membro de EAB neniel rilatas al la mapo. Ne temas pri aŭtomata proceso, laŭ kiu EAB-membroj aperas en ĝi. Necesas, ke vi aldonu vin mem, per alklako de la verda butono ĉe la mapo. Mi ne ĝuste memoras (ĉar mi jam estas aldoninta min mem do ne vidas la saman aferon, kiun vi vidas), sed mi kredas, ke vi devos poste elekti, ĉu uzi vian nunan lokon, ĉu entajpi alian. Fininte tion, vi aperos sur la mapo kiel aliaj homoj sub la titolo "membroj".

    Here are some screenshots of how I add a new keyboard. If you don't have any extra keyboard layouts installed, you may have to access the keyboard preferences through System Preferences. ABC Extended is grayed out as I already have it added.

    On the page showing my profile, the rendering of my "display name" shows accented characters (e.g. "ĉ") appear older than non-accented characters- see attached screengrab for an example. That's not the case in this message window though - so I don't think it's my PC or browser that's responsible: this name when typed (even in a pretty big font) has all letters with the same thickness; Vilĉjo

    In the editor (e.g. used to compose the message) some of the editing keys don't have their usual (for MS-Windows) behaviour If text has been selected (e.g. by SHIFT+CURSOR_KEYS, or dragging the mouse pointer) then DELETE doesn't delete the selection - instead it deletes the character to the right of the selection. Likewise if a pasted graphic/picture has been selected, DELETE doesn't delete the selection. CTRL+C fails to copy the selected text to the clipboard. CTRL+X fails to cut the selected text to the clipboard. (But CTRL-V does paste the content from the clipboard).

    You could also try adapting the script from vortaro.net, which seems to merge 'x' or 'X' with the previous letter when you type it, but doesn't replace all "cx"s in the text, so you can still enter "cx" by pasting it or by inserting the "c" after you type the "x" or by deleting characters between a "c" and an "x", which is good, I think.

    One possibility could be to have it as an option - I don't know how easy or otherwise Invision makes this, but if there was an extra toggle switch below the editor (next to "Correct my mistakes") for "Replace Xs", that could work nicely. The funny behaviour is probably a reasonable trade-off for the functionality if it can be enabled or disabled.

    This is the script we used on the old site, to change unaccented_char+x (or X) to accented_char, in HTML forms. Dunno if it could be adapted, or a similar approach used? At the top of the page, we declared a JavaScript function, then within the form we triggered that function with the "onKeyUp" event. Within the document, variable "x" when tells the function to perform the substitution. <SCRIPT language=JavaScript> function xAlUtf8(t) { if (document.getElementById("x").checked) { t = t.replace(/c[xX]/g, "\u0109"); t = t.replace(/g[xX]/g, "\u011d"); t = t.replace(/h[xX]/g, "\u0125"); t = t.replace(/j[xX]/g, "\u0135"); t = t.replace(/s[xX]/g, "\u015d"); t = t.replace(/u[xX]/g, "\u016d"); t = t.replace(/C[xX]/g, "\u0108"); t = t.replace(/G[xX]/g, "\u011c"); t = t.replace(/H[xX]/g, "\u0124"); t = t.replace(/J[xX]/g, "\u0134"); t = t.replace(/S[xX]/g, "\u015c"); t = t.replace(/U[xX]/g, "\u016c"); document.getElementById("q").value=t; } } //--></SCRIPT> ... <!-- SiteSearch using Google --> <FORM method=GET action="https://www.google.co.uk/search"> <input type=hidden name=ie value=UTF-8> <input type=hidden name=oe value=UTF-8> <TABLE bgcolor="#F7F9FD"><tr><td> <A title= "google" HREF="https://www.google.co.uk/"> <IMG SRC="https://www.google.co.uk/logos/Logo_40wht.gif" border="0" ALT="Google"></A> </td> <td> <INPUT TYPE=text id="q" name=q onKeyUp="xAlUtf8(this.value)" size=31 maxlength=255 value=""> <INPUT type=submit name=btnG VALUE="Search"> <br> <input type="checkbox" id="x" checked>Convert cx -&gt; &#265; etc.<br> <font size=-1> <input type=hidden name=domains value="www.esperanto.org.uk;www.esperanto-gb.org"><br> <!-- haven't found a way to tell Google to search multiple domains simultaneously--> <input type=radio name=sitesearch value="esperanto.org.uk" checked> EAB (membership, organisation, bookshop, LBE, Update)<br> <input type=radio name=sitesearch value=""> The whole World-Wide Web </font> </td> </tr> </TABLE> </FORM> <!-- end of SiteSearch Google -->

    In Firefox browser on Windows PC, full-screen window, zoom = 100% (i.e. the default view) the text in "EAB > About EAB" is too large - lines overlap and are partly hidden by other elements. See attached pic for example.

    EAB > EAB documentation > Constitution offers a link to a downloadable option. But that takes me to a page with a 500 error ( mentioning someone else's account name and password.) See attached screengrab.

    I use the ABC Extended keyboard layout, which allows you to type (pretty much) any accented character via dead keys accessible through alt. So to type ŝ I hit Alt-8, then type 's'. It's a bit slower than having a custom keyboard layout, but it means I don't have to faff around switching layouts when I'm zipping from one language to another.

    I can see that some of the more recent back issues of LBE are available to read in the "Downloads" section of the site @Edmundo queried whether there was going to be an archive of older issues as well?

    Yep. I've already done the scans of nearly every issue. But as I've reported in meetings, I'd like us to consider putting them into print first.

    It's fixed for me now Although in fairness, I hadn't noticed there was anything wrong with it when it was displaying Arial!

    Okay, for linux, it depends on your distro. Debian based distros (debian, ubuntu, raspiberrypi os, etc) will have an esperanto keyboard out of the box (raspiberry pi os, you have to go to the terminal and get to the raspiberry pi settings to select the Eo keyboard, and can't do it from the normal OS but that's about it.) older versions of Mint had complete GUI translated into esperanto so I believe it will have an esperanto keyboard.

    I have wrote my own keyboard, that you can install. Just select it as you would with any other language layout and with this, you get esperanto autocorrect if you download the appilcation Dictionaries (https://dictionaries.io) Esperanto-Klavaro.dmg
