Q. How to get a good 3rd party Greek keyboard online? [LexiLogos]

A.

Use e.g. the LexiLogos Greek keyboard

http://www.lexilogos.com/keyboard/greek_modern.htm

then e.g. split screen and copy/paste into your Duolingo text input box.

It also shows a transliteral representation of that Greek character.

Check out the third link. According to the instructions, I think the polytonic one would be the keyboard to go with. ^.^

I use a ChromeBook and can already switch between English, Greek, and Greeklish (Transliterating Eng to Gk) The problem I have is that when I'm on a timed training session, I'm unable to switch keyboards fast enough because the keyboard shortcut for switching is CTRL SPACE, the same key shortcut used for DuoLingo to speak the words again.

Can someone help?

You're not going to like this. Sorry, but I've just about given up using the timed practice. I can do more sentences faster using the practice without the timer because I can only do a few of the timed practices sentences.

There should be a way in Control Panel/Language/ etc. to change the language switch shortcut...I'm not sure exactly what it is, look it up :) hope this helps

I have a school PC computer, and I can't go onto settings. How do I enable greek?

Talk to librarian or whoever's in charge. Someone usually has "Administrator" access and passwords.
