I was wondering if there was a function to convert a scancode string into the actual symbol? If not, I can just refer it to a dictionary.

Maybe you could use the as_text() function on the corresponding input event?

func _input(event):

Would this work for data being pulled off InputMap?

InputMap stores InputEvents, and as_text() is what Godot uses to show them in the editor so I assume it’s the way to go.
