Keyboard layout for Portuguese (Brazil)

There are two QWERTY-based keyboard layouts used for the Portuguese language.

The Brazilian keyboards are specified in the ABNT NBR (Norma Brasileira Regulamentadora) 10346 variant 2 (alphanumeric) and NBR 10347 (numeric portion) standards.

History[edit]

Typewriters in Portuguese-speaking countries generally have a separate extra key for Ç, and a dead key for each diacritic (except the cedilla), so that Á is obtained by typing first the acute accent, then the letter A, etc.
