If you use a \'FONETICAL\' keyboard for Russian you can type as fast in Russian as you can in English/other Western European. If you use an English keyboard for English and a \'TYPEWRITER\' keyboard for Russian you get a mess. If we had a \'fonetical\' Russian keyboard Win98/2000 (works with any word processor and with databases on Internet, useful for looking up Russian-English) we would have solved a problem. In the old days (Chiwriter, Wp5.1 for DOS) you could put your letters where you wanted them. The key question would seem to be: can we do the same with the keyboards (not only the English and Russian ones but many others) of Windows 98/2000 etc?

Russian alphabet input Nov 15, 2001

The solution for the problem might look like this:

You download some cyrillic converter I would advise www.cirilica.ru, to my opinion it is the best one.

Type using the English keyboard and alphabet (transliteration) and convert the text in cyrillic.

It will require a revision, no eto pustiaki.

Phonetic keyboard is available at... Nov 16, 2001

Actually, if one learns to type using a \"standard\" Cyrillic layout, one can type as fast as you can using any other kind of layout.



In fact, I would argue that a phonetic Cyrillic layout promotes bad habits, but few people are interested in such discussions.



If you want a keyboard file to replace the Windows \"standard\" Cyrillic layout with a phonetic one, I have one available on my web site (www.galexi.com/words/) as freeware. It\'s been successfully used at JSC (NASA), and extensively at that, so you should not have any problems.



If you want a fully customizable keyboard, do a search for \"Janko\'s Keyboard Generator\" on the Web. It should still be available out there, somewhere, and it\'s free to use for non-commercial purposes (or a modest registration fee otherwise).



Cheers...
