The keyboard was inspired by Gaspar Sinai's Yudit editor
and Refoyl Finkel's Yidishe Shraybmashinke.
Thanks Dvorah Biasca, Refoyl Finkel, Hershl Glasser, Perets Mett, Noyekh Miller, Leonard Prager and Shoshke-Rayzl Yuni for their help during the development of this keyboard.
1. Download and install Tavultesoft Keyman from:
- Right click on the Windows Task Bar (the lower gray bar in your Windows desktop). Click on Properties.
- Click on Start Menu Programs, then Advanced.
- Double click on Programs in the list, and then scroll down until you find Tavultesoft Keyman, and then keyman.exe
- When you find keyman.exe, right-click and drag the file to your desktop and select "Create a Shortcut."
I suggest moving the shortcut to the lower right corner of your screen so that it will
be near the blue Windows Keyboard Indicator, or else you can drag the shortcut to your
Start menu so that it will be easily accessible. (Note that you will need to click this
prior to typing in Yiddish after every time you restart your computer. Explained more
fully in Usage Instructions, linked below.)
