Wasagamack Syllabics Keyboard

The Wasagamack Syllabics Keyboard uses characters from the Island Lake community of Wasagamack.  The student can then type in a syllabic word or phrase into the keyboard and translate into roman orthography characters.

Students can use the app to practice their understanding of syllabics. Teachers/Elders are already using the App to practice typing Syllabics in the classroom.

This App is available for iPhone/iPad and Android devices.
