It can be solved by implementing some of the following aids:

  • For the IME menu, include an option to "show/hide keyboard" (or show/hide mapping) next to the input method that provides an overlay with the appropriate mapping (if it is interactive, it is a keyboard, but it may be just informative). See the Bolnagri option at
