It only happened on Internet explorer, i restart the computer and it goes away, but happens every so often.
i think it’s a setting being touched by mistake.
there should be a computer guy/gal among us who knows what it is.
thanks, i do have a cold lolDecember 16, 2010 2:55 pm at 2:55 pm #720288RuffRuffMember
You mean to say that you type straight and the text flows right to left?December 16, 2010 3:13 pm at 3:13 pm #720289apushatayidParticipant
Did you hold down shift and alt at the same time? If you have the hebrew module of MS office installed shift/alt is the command to go from english to hebrew. If your text IS moving from right to left, check the lower right hand corner of the screen to see if the letters “en” appear. If yes, click on it to go back to english. Alt shift also takes you back to english (at least it does for me).December 16, 2010 3:54 pm at 3:54 pm #720290
the letters en used to be there aren’t anymore, do u know how i can get them back.
the alt/shift i think will do the trick, thanks a millionDecember 16, 2010 6:15 pm at 6:15 pm #720291apushatayidParticipant
EN is only there when you are in hebrew mode. You click on them to switch back to english mode. In english mode you wont see the EN (obviously).December 22, 2010 5:22 pm at 5:22 pm #720292metrodriverMember
maah; Or it could be a touch of Dyslexia. When I type fast some words come out inverted due to my typing. “The” comes out as “Teh”, sometimes. Or in verbal communication. Some people, (of a certain former minority) will say “Ax” for “Ask”. Some others will imitate them because they think it’s cooool.
Oh yes. On my cell phone I had this problem when it got wet from rain, the words came out from right to left when texting.December 23, 2010 10:49 am at 10:49 am #720293haifagirlParticipant
I’m in English mode and I have “EN” on my screen.
When I switch to Hebrew I have “HE” on my screen.
I have Windows XP Pro, if that means anything.December 23, 2010 6:39 pm at 6:39 pm #720294Derech HaMelechMember
If none of these ideas work, consult a neurologist.December 23, 2010 7:27 pm at 7:27 pm #720295Midwest2Participant
Believe it or not, the standard keyboard was designed to *slow down* typing, because the original typewriters were mechanical and if the typist typed too fast the levers for the keys got jammed. The placement of the keys has never been changed because it would mean everybody who typed would have to relearn how.
So your fingers are being more logical than the keyboard. The only solution is just to slow down a bit.
