I did have an old reference site for the conversion of Windows Ru keyboard into the more user-friendly qwerty or Yaherty, I believe it is called, keyboard. MS does not provide it, but there is a procedure for doing this. Where can it be obtained nowadays?

Website for Russian "student" qwerty keyboard Mar 26, 2002

Try



http-gwis.circ.gwu.edu~slavic-cyrilize.html



It consists of an article on the subject of Cyrillic keyboards,

some way down which there is a link for the downloading of \"studkbd.exe\".

The downloaded file gives full instructions. I installed this

keyboard and find it entirely satisfactory.

I much prefer it to the standard Russian keyboard, which I never got used to using because I hardly ever needed to at the time, though I need it more nowadays.

Dear Yngve, Mar 26, 2002

If you prefer Russian phonetic keyboard (YaWERTY), you can download it from this site:



http://www.siber.org/sib/russify/ms-windows/keyboard/



You\'ll also find installation instructions there.



Cheers,

Natalia

TOPIC STARTER
User-friendly explained. Mar 26, 2002

More user-friendly to typists who use the qwerty keyboard configuration, which would be the majority out there, when we are dealing with European languages, i.e., even the Eastern Europeans use qwerty-modified keyboards. Why the Russians cannot adapt to the rest of Europe is a mystery to me. Is the non-qwerty in any way faster? Well, they have, in that Yawerty is available as an alternative, only MS does not get it, since it offers not the Yawerty option.



It would be interesting to know whether Yawerty is being used to any significant degree in Russia proper.



Thanks for the site. Hopefully it will work.



Yngve

Cyrillic "Student" keyboard file Mar 26, 2002

I thought I had a link for this but it doesn\'t work any more. However, I still have the file I downloaded from it. It was freeware, so no copyright is involved. I could email it to anyone who wants it.

Cyrillic "student" keyboard Mar 26, 2002

I use one of these which I downloaded (as freeware) from a site now apparently extinct, but I still have the executable file for it and could email it to anyone interested. It is not the same filename as the one from the site which Natalie suggests, but is probably very similar.

New URL for Cyrillic "student" keyboard Mar 27, 2002

I just posted this under another topic heading \"Cyrillic encodings\", thinking it was this one, so in case it doesn\'t get moved to this topic, here is is again:

I have just found the current URL for the \"studkbd.exe\" file I referred to earlier. It is:



http://gwis.circ.gwu.edu/~slavic/cyrilize.html#keyboards



But I am still willing to email it myself to anyone who wants it.
