My Duolingo Cyrillic Extension
I just want to give you a link to my Duolingo chrome extension:
I am a ukrainian learner and have designed this extension so that the keyboard will automatically change languages when you get a question in Russian and Ukrainian. Please download it and [b]rate it[/b] and leave you feedback as I would very much like to improve it.
Thanks everyone and good luck learning Russian!!!
A Russian product BTW : http://www.artlebedev.com/everything/optimus/maximus/
Thank you for this extension. But for those who use different browsers or somehow can't get it to work, there is the option of installing the keyboard inputs for other languages (using your favorite websearch engine). The challenge is then finding out how to quickly switch language inputs.
For windows on a desktop, once the language bar is loaded with the desired input languages, one quick way to switch languages is LEFT ALT + SHIFT, which cycles through the language options.
Hi! I cannot say if it works with a Swedish keyboard - but I use a German keyboard by myself with additional letters like ä,ö,ü and ß. In my case the Cyrillic Extension works well. But: I wouldn´t recommend a German (or Swedish) keyboard with out-of-the-box Cyrillic letters on it. The problem is, that the Cyrillic Extension links to the corresponding English keys. So when using this type of keyboard you high-likely get some annoying problems as the printing doesn´t fit the standard positions for Cyrillic letters on an english keyboard. I use transparent cyrillic stickers that I applied to my normal standard keyboard. It was a bit of work to find all the cyrillic letters on the German keyboard by testing. Four of them where quite hard to find, as they needed additional String or Alt keys.
Kein Problem, ich bin so stolz auf meine Tastatur, dass ich das gerne Teile! Leider bin ich zum üben immer zu faul...
As I am sitting in front of my German/Cyrillic keyboard anyway, here an overview of the keys that are "irregular".
б is ,
ю is .
Ж is Shift + . (= :)
ж is Shift + , (= ;)
Э is Shift + 2
ъ is Alt R + 9
Ъ is Alt R + 0
Ё is Alt R + +
Х is Alt R + 7
, is Shift + ß
Shift + 6 produces a "?" sometimes, but behaves like ^ (letter appears not instantly when pressing the key).
I don´t have the small "x" and the small "ё", I never found them. But Duolingo doesn´t complain when using capital letters. So some keys are nasty to use, but still better than changing the keyboard setting in Windows. All other keys are available at the standard A-Z layout and were easy to identify.
Have fun! :-)
Wow, that seems really complicated. Ich finde das sehr kommpliziert! I am using the PC version of the Russian keyboard (haven‘t installed this extension yet) and I have:
- Б б on , and ; (, and Shift + )
- Ю ю on . and : (. and Shift + .)
- Ж ж on Ö ö
- Э э on Ä ä
- Ъ ъ on ^ and ¨ (¨ and Shift + ¨)
- Ё ё on °§ (§ and Shift + §)
- Х х on Å å (Deutsche Ü ü), and
- , on _ (Shift + -).
