    Isnt Yá'át'ééh correct?????!

    Yáʼátʼééh! I am using Multiling Keyboard to type the right symbols in Navajo. This apostrophe ʼ is different from the vertical single apostrophe ' from the English keyboard, and it is called right single curved quote (right single quotation mark, in Unicode), closing smart quote, or also closing single apostrophe. I think it is typed using Alt+0146 in Windows, but I have not tried this method yet.

    Thank you Diego! I had just asked you that question in the discussion right before this one, so I will remove it when I am on a computer.

    Is there a keyboard I'm missing? Can't progress but it won't accept "yá'át'ééh" OR "yaateeh"


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Elise170405

    I've downloaded the Navajo keyboard too and it wont let me progress


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Karen33527

    Help!! I'm certain Yá'át'ééh is right, but it won't let me continue!

    they can't really be expecting everybody who takes this course to download some third party multiling keyboard just to make a slightly different apostrophe symbol, can they?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Alina839036

    I know this is right, what's wrong?

    Yá’át’ééh! I'm using the Navajo keyboard for Google Keyboard on Samsung Galaxy S8... Used it to type the greeting here... Would not accept what I typed above... So frustrating! :(


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DiegoJaviUnlam

    Yáʼátʼééh! Wow, indeed! I can see your greeting has a different apostrophe from mine. Please, sorry if my English is wrong here. I am a Spanish native speaker. I am not using the same keyboard, and even my Android system is old. I think you can try with long pressing to find the curved single apostrophe on your keyboard. There are different types: ' ' (single vertical apostrophe) / ‘ ‘ (these are the left and right quotation marks, and perhaps you are using the right single apostrophe from these) / “ ” (the same but with double quotation marks) / ʼ ' ’ (the first is the curved right single apostrophe followed by the others)

    I really hope the different types can be accepted. :)

    This is especially frustrating from a technical standpoint as the Hawaiian lessons do have a button to click for the right ' symbol, (just like for accented and glottal letters here), so it is just a matter of copying that little bit of code over.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MiguelAnge319651

    There is a big, big problem with this.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/django317

    I've downloaded a Navajo keyboard and it still doesn't help something must be wrong

    No alt codes or Dine keyboard on cellphone. Please put in a prominent note as to what keyboards or techniques are acceptable for input

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/greg612458

    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/allycatblues

    on my keyboard I had to go to the symbols and long press the apostrophe to get the specific apostrophe it wanted.

    Nice work blocking an indian language


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/catspad1

    My phone won't let me put in the accents


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Grigor877060

    Time to give up

    If there is no way of answering the question on a regular keyboard then it will be impossible to progress


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/StarlightS11

    I'll give the new keyboard a shot but it's annoying


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Fredisbert6

    How do i typ any of the accents


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AutumnOpti

    Having the same issue as everyone else


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Dare3966

    Just copy and paste.

    I'm using the right answer, but it won't take it.

    My phone won't let me punctuate the way it is in Navajo. I spell it right but it doesn't matter.

    I wonder whether Navajo people want to write down their oun words or not. They might want no letter for their language,I think. So, I wish I could study Nabajo lessons only by listening and speaking.
