This is a draft on how a customizable virtual keyboard could be implemented in WordPress paragraph block.
1 there could be a plugin that allows for creating a virtual keyboard with some 20 custom keys, that is suggested to the user when he/she uses three different ‘keyboard’ shortcuts to type e.g. accented characters as in French or Spanish.
2 once the plugin is active and the person types text, he/she can choose to have the custom keyboard displayed and thus use the ‘virtual’ keys to type a special character of choice. This appears certainly less cumbersome than using many different shortcuts (@gziolo suggested NO SHORTCUTS for typing) and would allow for any character set of choice.
See below a draft proposal of what the set up of a customized interface could look like and one of how the virtual keyboard might show into the paragraph window if requested.
It would be nice to receive feedback on this,
1 How to set up the virtual keyboard
2 How to use it with the editor
