New Zealand Māori (Combo) Keyboard Definition

Last Updated: 11/03/2010 20:00
This is the New Zealand Māori Keyboard Definition released by Microsoft New Zealand, with the addition of the AltGr method of generating macrons used by the (Alt) keyboard.

Macron characters are generated by using either the [~] then Key combination or by using the [AltGr] (Right Alt) key in combination with the vowel.

This is a keyboard definition based on the basic English (International) keyboard.
This keyboard definition supports macron characters, as well as the European accented characters - very useful if you're working in Europe.

Macron characters are generated by using the [AltGr] (Right Alt) key in combination with the vowel.
This means that the [AltGr] + Key combination can't be used for the European characters, so these have been shifted to the [~] then Key combination.
