Each language may be provided with two keyboards, one for quick touch typing, the other for multi-lingual (English/French/Spanish/Native language). Individual typists can choose whichever keyboard suits their needs best.
The touch typing keyboard re-assigns alphabetic keys which are not used by the language, for example, a language does not employ the letter j, so the j-key has been changed to a haček accent ˇ. Accents on touch-typing keyboards are typed first, before the letter they modify: j + c = č. The back-slash \ key followed by any other key reverts the key to its original value: \ + j = j.
The multi-lingual keyboards place accents and special letters only on punctuation keys, so as not to interfere with letters required by English: the haček accent ˇ is on the left-braket [-key. On these keyboards, accents are typed after the letter they modify: c + [ = č. The key indicated on the keymap as ¤ followed by any other key reverts the key to its original value: ¤ + [ = [.
