Hebrew Keyboard

How do you type in Hebrew? An app? Download of some sort?

If you're on windows, then just go to Control panel --> Clock, Language and Region --> Add a language --> Hebrew


What system are you using? Android, iphone, windows phone, tablet-which? Macintosh or Windows? http://duolingo.wikia.com/wiki/Hebrew http://duolingo.wikia.com/wiki/Guide_to_keyboard_layouts_and_input_methods

On my Windows7 Computer, I set up through the Control Panel, click on Regions and Languages, click Keyboards and Language tab, click on Change Keyboards button, click on Add button, scroll down to Hebrew, click to check box Hebrew (Israel) - Keyboard - Hebrew , click OK, click Apply, click OK.

Click on Advanced Key Settings to choose CTRL + 3 or whatever number you want to use for quickly changing to it and CTRL + 1 for English to change back, perhaps CTRL + 2 for Spanish, if you want. I did not install Spanish keyboard, because I chose to install the International English keyboard which allows for many accents. Here is a picture of the keyboard to get used to where each character/letter is: https://www.microsoft.com/resources/msdn/goglobal/keyboards/kbdheb.html

On Android you can also choose another keyboard layout to add and it is easier. Click on Settings, scroll down to Language and Input and click on it, for me I click on Samsung Keyboard, Add input languages, and click the on button next to Hebrew. The only thing is that the word "Hebrew" is written in Hebrew characters, so it comes after all the languages written in Roman or Latin alphabet. You have to search through the languages at the bottom which use a different script. It looks like this : כבדית

I am sure it can be added for all the phones and computers and tablets.
