Typing in Danish, Norwegian, Finnish, or Swedish
The Danish, Norwegian, Finnish, and Swedish languages are largely based on a Latin alphabet with a few variations. These languages use the basic QWERTY keyboard layout with the addition of Å, Æ and Ø (for Danish and Norwegian), and Ö and Ä (for Finnish and Swedish). The keyboards also support the following features:
- Word prediction and flicking word suggestions up onto the screen (if you have this feature turned on)
- You can type alternate characters in two ways. You can press and press a letter. A second method is to press and hold the primary character. Then, you can select the alternate character from the options.
- Alternate characters are available for I (Ä), O (Ö), P (Å), K (Æ), and L (Ø). To type an alternate character, press and hold the primary character. Then, select the accented character.
- To type a symbol, tap . To view more symbols, tap again.
