Esperanto X-system

In Esperanto, it is common to type gx or cx to mean the single letter g(with the hat) and c(with the hat). There is also a system of using an h instead of an x (like gh and ch to mean the single special letters). (

In the course via the web page, as far as I can tell you must use the mouse to click the on-screen letters. That is very inconvenient because it breaks an otherwise effortless input mode (typing with the keyboard).

Has anyone found another method?
