Typing Sanskrit

While MacOS comes with a Sanskrit Devanagari keyboard, this lacks a number of characters that users of this language may require, including special symbols and Vedic accents and cantillation marks. If you need those, check out the Keyman app and its Vedic Sanskrit Devanagari Phonetic Keyboard.

This keyboard is also available for iOS and browser use.

If you need to type transliterated Sanskrit in Latin Script, Apple's ABC Extended Input Source is probably the best choice.
