How to type kamatz (T under letter) with Windows 7 and Israeli keyboard? I can type Hebrew letters

July 20, 2016



I am Israeli and I don't know how to do it. I wonder if nikud (the vowels in Hebrew) is ever included in any Unicode. Perhaps I am wrong, and there is a way to do it, but WHY? :)

In short - no one in Israel uses these. Except, perhaps, children at elementary school. And if I were to give any advice, I'd recommend not to waste one's time on it.


Here is a Wikipedia page about typing nikkud. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Niqqud#Keyboard It is, as leonig01 said, not widely used anywhere in Israel.


Thank you both, Leonig01 and GershonOsm. I was under the impression that Duolingo required it, but apparently not.


If you press a key and hold it down the "vowels" will emerge and you just choose the one you need.


I wonder where do you have such an option? I tried it on my PC (win7) Heb layout keyboard, and on Android Hebrew keyboard (LG G3) - none of them worked.


It works on my MacPro! English keyboard with the Hebrow keyboard running in the background. Also works on my iPhone when I switch language but on my phone it sometimes screws up for some unknowns readon


Try shift and a number at the top of the keyboard for nikud. Wish I could find punctuation tho!
