View Full Version : Phonetic russian key layout

Swype includes support for traditional russian keyboard, but not phonetic (translit) version. For many russians like me, traditional keyboard is of little use since we used to western latin key layouts

I've just installed Swype Beta keyboard (coming from pre-installed Verizon Swype application) hoping that I could make it easier to switch from English to Russian. However, lack of the Russian phonetic layout (http://winrus.com/kbd_e.htm) is a show-stopper for me.

The "phonetic" layout places similarly sounding Russian letter over the standard QWERTY keyboard and is widely used outside of Russia.

Thank you!

I agree! The layout is very similar to the Bulgarian, so it should make it easier to implement it. Or as a work-around, is it possible to associate the Bulgarian layout with the Russian dictionary and voice processing?

Any Updates on Russian Phonetic layout?
