The problem I just flagged appears to be a Word problem.
The problem (`A giving ꜣ , not A) does not appear in the Keyman Text Editor, where the keyboard works fine.

Yes, this is a known issue with Word -- it often thinks it knows better than the user does which font should be selected for a given script. As far as we have been able to determine, there is no reliable workaround in Word itself, which is frustrating.

However, you may find that Keyman 9, which uses a different method of inserting characters into Word, gives you a better result -- this is available at as a prerelease product right now.
