Requirements for Yiddish in Windows:

The below four steps must all be performed in order to flawlessly enjoy Yiddish in the Windows environment -- typing, reading, using basic Windows applications. If you omit any of these steps, don't compain to me!

1. Install Microsoft Hebrew Language Pack (In Vista/Win 7 -- go to Control Panel, Windows Update, Optional Updates. For earlier Windows versions, adding Hebrew to your system is an option you can add when updating Internet Explorer.)

2. Install a Yiddish Keyboard

3. Prepare Microsoft Office

4. Check Applicable Software Settings

Free downloads of five Yiddish Keyboards, updated for Vista and Windows 7 (Yiddish/Hebrew, Yiddish Phonetic QWERTY, Yiddish Tsadek-X, Yiddish Non-Shift, and Yiddish Royal Typewriter) Sorry folks, but the conversion of our old keyboards from the older operating systems is being done by an international multi-continental very small team of volunteers. So, it's a slow process, but it's coming...
