How do I use my Russian Keyboard Function???

How? When you type the English letter on your keyboard that sounds kind of like a Cyrillic letter while Russian Keyboard is on, it comes up as not the right Cyrillic letter. Any advice?

Well, the Russian keyboard has a different layout from English, so if you want to check out the layout, here's the page. https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:KB_Eng-Rus_QWERTY(%D0%99%D0%A6%D0%A3%D0%9A%D0%95%D0%9D).svg

I use Google Input Tools and the

Русская клавиатура keyboard for Russian.

It shows a virtual keyboard.

For it, I have to put the English keyboard too.

The alphabet is too different to be effectively simulated with latin alphabet directly. I don't know if similar solutions that are available in Japanese and Chinese exist, that would convert phonetically transliterated text into Russian cyrillics. However I found keybr.com adequately effective tool to get my fingers into right places. There are similar solutions too. I made a thread about it, but it has been removed from existence.

Here's the link to keybr. You can practice with any standard keyboard. Won't replace on-screen keyb unless you learn it tho.
