Typing in Hangeul Part 2
As promised, this is the second part of my post Typing in Hangeul.
Today I will be presenting the Korean Keyboard Layout that I’ve worked so hard for. It took me hours making it so I hope no one would snatch it and claim that they made it themselves. Anyway, here it is:
I used the keyboard layout of my laptop so it may not be similar to other keyboards but the main idea is that each letter represents a character in 한글.
Let me explain to you the color coding of this keyboard layout. You may see that I placed 3 color sections for the layout. The pink-colored letters are the vowels of 한글. On the other hand, the green- and blue-colored letters are for the consonants. I made it so it would be distinct enough especially if you’re only a beginner and those who are just about to start typing in 한글.
The consonants are subdivided into 2 colors. Now, why is that? I made the first batch of consonants green in the uppermost part to distinguish that these are the characters with a 쌍 or double.
For example, to type the honorific suffix 씨, you need to make ㅅ double. So to make that possible you need to press SHIFT and ㅅ (which is the letter T) simultaneously and then press the ㅣ (which is the letter L).
The blue-colored letters are those consonants without the 쌍 counterpart.
So I guess you’ve already Mastered the Art of Typing Hangeul. I can now leave the rest to you. Enjoy typing my friend. 😉
P.S. You can also download/save the image for you to print and have beside you when you type. You can learn a lot faster this way. Hope I made your life a lot easier with this image. Thanks for visiting and do leave your feedbacks. Comments are ♥.
EDIT [04.09.09]: I edited the layout I made. Added ㅒ and ㅖ. Thanks Jim for mentioning it. Good thing I still have the raw file with me.
