This online Greek keyboard is designed for typing Modern Greek, not Ancient Greek letters. If you’re looking for an Ancient Greek keyboard, check out this one by Randy Hoyt.

Although Modern and Ancient Greek use the same alphabet, Ancient Greek uses 7 different diacritical signs (accents, breathings, etc.) that are placed over letters in various combinations. In Modern Greek, the number of diacritical signs has been reduced to 2 — the tonos (´) and the rarely used dialytika (¨).

This online Greek keyboard is based on the “Beta Code” keyboard layout, which tries to match Greek characters to QWERTY keys based on sound — for example, the letter ν (nu), which sounds like n, is typed by pressing N.
