SophoKeys provides an easy to use and standardized method for writing Ancient Greek on the Mac, taking advantage of the well-known Beta Code of Thesaurus Linguae Graecae. Producing platform independent Unicode output, SophoKeys is a perfect tool perfect for the modern publishing world. Creating complex documents is simple, requiring no deadkeys or modifiers except shift -- simply type in Beta Code and watch your properly marked text appear on the screen, with live-updated cues as you type!
Alternatively, SophoKeys also comes with an Express layout, which enables very rapid text entry. Features include all common breathings, accents and other marks available with a single keystroke and vowel deadkeys - type accents after letters! Furthermore, SophoKeys Express allows capital letters to be entered in the simpler shift-letter format.
SophoKeys also comes with a Caps layout which is exactly like the standard layout, but removes the need for asterisk-based capitalization. The Caps layout supports capital letter entry with either the shift or caps-lock key, then allows accents and other marks to be typed afterwards.
