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"

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?

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! :(

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.
