Keyboard input methods

An input method enables you to type words or characters that are not available using the characters on your keyboard

layout. In some cases, input methods give you a phonetic approximation of a word based on the keyboard layout you are

using. Your device can then suggest a character or diacritic based on the sound you choose.
In other cases, input methods provide you with gestures and key combinations for languages. Some keyboard input

methods are common to all supported languages, such as word prediction or selecting accented characters by pressing

and holding keys.
All keyboard input methods also support using the

key to access symbols.
