Input methods (typing)
This section is under construction.
The default editor includes a section with "special characters" (in the bar above the edit form). You can click on a character to enter it in the edit form.
There are also additional characters below the edit form. You can request to add characters to this section. (Go to the Community Portal to ask.)
You can use the "Narayam" virtual keyboard tool to write in your language. The tool is triggered when you are using or have used an interface language for which there is a configuration (see mw:Extension:Narayam for the full list). Then you should see a menu next to your username at the top of the page. Check "Enable" (Ctrl-M) and the edit field will become blue.
This will allow anyone to type without having an appropriate keyboard available.
