Hebrew on keyboard

How do I make my keyboard type Hebrew? Can't progress through 1st lesson! Keeps asking the same question.

Someone more technical will have to explain, but in the meantime: http://www.lexilogos.com/keyboard/hebrew.htm is a good way to type Hebrew.

Just add the Hebrew keyboard to your computer :)

For Windows XP: go to Control Panel, Regional and Language Options, Languages tab. Make sure that "Install files for complex script and right-to-left languages (including Thai)" is ticked: If it isn't ticked, tick it and click OK, follow the prompts to restart Windows, and start this process again. Click Details button, click Add. Select Hebrew for the Input language and US keyboard layout from the "Keyboard layout/IME" list, click OK. Click OK, OK. Use "Alt + Shift" to toggle between languages.

For Windows 7: go to Control Panel and select "Region and Language. Click the tab "Keyboards and Languages". Click Change Keyboards, click Add. From the list select Hebrew, and checkmark Hebrew under keyboard, click OK. Click OK, OK. Use "Alt + Shift" to toggle between languages.

For Mac: Open System Preferences. Click the International button. Click "Input Menu". Scroll down until you see Hebrew, then put a check next to it. Put a check next to "Show input menu in menu bar". To change the language to Hebrew when you type, click on the American flag on the top right of the menu bar, and then choose Hebrew.


Thank you so much. :)
