    In another thread which I do not want to bump

    popa bar abba. Member. mod 80: how do you type Hebrew?

    Click on Start in the search box type languages.

    If you are using Vista or Windows 7 you should be on your way

    Tips

    When using Word, Mail or Outlook you can change the orientation by clicking on the P facing left to right or

    by selecting the text and right clicking choose paragraph and make

    the necessary adj.

    In notebook and posting on line your results can be very awkward.

    Also when posting to forums if the host is not Hebrew enabled your post will be gibberish

    Correction !!!

    clicking on the P facing right to left not

    clicking on the P facing left to right

    IMPORTANT

    Once you are Hebrew enabled you will need keyboard decals available in “heimishe” computer stores or download a layout from http://www.qsm.co.il/Hebrew/keyboard.htm

    I doubt its convenience

    I have seen Hebrew keyboards for sale.

    What is the advantage? How is it better than just sticking on the decals which cost a fraction of a keyboard? Does it save you the bother of switching languages on the toolbar?

    What happens when you try and post here using the Windows character map? As a test, the Hebrew letters spelling out “shalom” should follow this line:

    For the slow ones like me, can someone please give the basics on how to type hebrew in word?

    I use my computer a lot, but have never figured out how to use hebrew in word, so I rely on dagesh. However I would much rather use word.

    Anyone offering to give basic instructions on how to set it up on my computer, and how to switch from english to hebrew – in laymans terms!?

    control panel> (in windows 7) change keyboards or other input methods (in other versions) regional and language settings> keyboards and languages tab> change keyboards> add> scroll down to and selct hebrew from the list. click the little + to the left of the list item and check the “hebrew” entry. click OK.

    in word, if you want to change to hebrew entry simultaneously push the left alt key and the left shift key.

    you can also use the on screen keyboard (vista and 7) for help mapping where the keys are.

    to switch back and forth between languages use alt+shift.

    Thanks for your great tips! It’s seems to be working but it’s a little quirky. In ‘page layout’ I have a list of Hebrew fonts in ‘themes’. When I click on them, some don’t seem to change and some are non-proportional. Not sure what good they are to anybody. Also when I try to insert quotes in Hebrew, sometimes the letters get interchanged – meaning I havel aleph, bais, gimel but when I insert quotes between the aleph and bais, I get bais, quote, aleph gimel. Just wondering if this is how it’s ‘supposed’ to work.

    I’m sorry for not looking at this sooner. Thank you for posting it.

    I went to languages, and “added” hebrew. It says now that it is not enabled nor installed. What do I do next?

    dovidl, if your constantly in a hebrew language mode, it shouldn’t give you problems. (if you switch in the middle to english for the quotes, it will do that. you can do quotes on hebrew mode too) “????” also, not all fonts work so great with hebrew. and if the font doesn’t even change when you click on it, it mean its not installed on your computer even though its on the list.

    Papa don’t remember I really am not much of a guru try following

    bombmaniac’s instructions.

    If you are lucky enough to be a customer of Technical Difficulties on 18th Ave, try asking him . Avi/Ari is a really nice guy. I had a problem which necessitated installing a new operating system. Avi/Ari noticed that I was a Hebrew user and activated Hebrew & did not even mention it. Another tech (also a really nice guy) charged me $35.00 for teaching my computer Hebrew.

    So which is the Real Poppa

    Was

    I would never vacation anywhere I might meet a frum jew.

    is it any wonder I want to get away from frum jews?

    just acting?

    did you bring it to the tech just to get hebrew inhstalled? and did you bring it to TD just to get hebrew? or was it for something else..you said it was for teh OS change. of course they arent charging for hebrew…theyre already charging for the OS…if it was just for hebrew im sure TD would charge

    I did not fault the tech for charging and I did not mean to imply that TD will “do it” free of charge. I just wanted to pint out that TD is nice guy & possibly might not mind answering a quick Q from a cuctomer

    Hebrew on a Mac:

    Click on the little flag in the upper, right corner. Click on “Open International.” Add Hebrew. Then to change back and forth, just click on the flag.

    If you don’t have Hebrew, here’s another idea. For Aleph, simply type ה and for Beis, type ו and so on.

    ? and for Beis, type ? is is what I got when I clicked & pasted from your original post

    How did you get the display of & #1492; ( I stuck in a space)

    Once I post it & then hit the edit button I get the Hebrew ?????? not the original coding

    You gotta be really desperate to use this coding . I cannot see myself attempting to write even one word

    You definitely have to be desperate to use that. On my phone I can’t even read Hebrew, so in case I must I can use אבג…

    By the way, in order to show that stuff, I typed : &<em></em>#1488;

    Lol.

    By the way, when I post with my phone I open a new window and open a hebrew typing website, type copy and then paste into original window. Its really ez and quick. An example is http://people.w3.org/rishida/scripts/pickers/hebrew/lite
