Keyboard Layout Testing Tool

This repository contains a very simple AutoHotKey script and accompanying compliance testing command-line tool, to test available keystrokes from the currently selected keyboard layout and compare the result against a known state.

This tool is currently being used to test compliance of the AZERTY-NF keyboard layout.

How to test

This repository contains the current expected.txt file that stores the requested keystrokes for a NF Z71-300 standard-compliant AZERTY keyboard layout.

In order to test the keyboard layout, please follow the steps outlined hereafter:

  • Install and select the desired keyboard layout.
  • Run the nf-z71-300.ahk script.
  • Open an empty Notepad® text file
  • In Notepad®, hit Ctrl+r to run the test.
  • When the test completes, save the resulting file in the UTF-8 encoding. For instance, save the file as actual.txt.

You can now compile and run the accompanying compliance.exe command-line tool, with the following command:

PS> cd src/
PS> dotnet run ..\actual.txt ..\expected.txt

This will gather the results and report the compliance rate of the layout.

Current compliance level

The referred-to AZERTY-NF (Numérique) layout reports 100% standard compliance.

The referred-to AZERTY-NF layout with SGCaps feature is only slightly less compliant, and brings a very useful way to type accented characters in upper case.

It is currently reporting the following results:

Success: 97,34%
Total: 752, Succeeded: 732, Failed: 20.

..\expected.txt(26, 10): Expected: '«' (U+00AB), Actual: '9' (U+0039).
..\expected.txt(26, 11): Expected: '»' (U+00BB), Actual: '0' (U+0030).

For this reason, this repository also contains an alternate expected_sgcaps.txt file for a customized layout allowing direct input of upper case accented characters when using Caps Lock which is a popular option.
