The keyboards for different languages are essentially the same nowadays: it sends a code indicating which button is acted on and whether it is depressed or released. The computer then translates using a key map. So for a Cherokee keyboard, as discussed in the video, one would need different images on the keys if one bothers, and a key map.

One problem here is that is that it is very time consuming to design such key maps. This is another shortcoming of Unicode usage: lack of input methods, in addition to the font issue.
