Type Hebrew like your mother tongue in minutes!
This section teaches how to type Heblish vowels and other advanced topics.
Before doing this, you should have learned basic Heblish.
To type a vowel or advanced key in Web Heblish,
Use the vowel key which you prefer:
- Type a vowel key to indicate the next key is a vowel or other advanced key
- Type the key.
- Upper-case W (which stands for voWel).
- Upper-case K or Q (which stand for ניקוד)
For example, to type Kamatz:
- Type Upper-case W (the vowel key) and then
- Type a.
In the remainder of the advanced tutorial, please remember to precede vowels with the vowel key.
In Windows Heblish* (Heblish Keyboard Layout installed directly into Windows)
the vowel key is different.
While typing a vowel or other advanced key, you must press either
So Kamatz would be either <Ctrl><Alt>-a or <Caps Lock>-a.
- the <Ctrl><Alt> keys or
- the <Caps Lock> key
This will not work in Web Heblish including this tutorial!
*Note Windows Heblish on Windows 98 and Windows ME does not presently support
the advanced keys described in this section.
- <Caps Lock> is useful in programs like MS Word which already use <Ctrl><Alt> keys.
- <Caps Lock> may leave the Caps Lock on when you return to typing English.
- To use <Ctrl><Alt> in MS Word, unmap the conflicting
MS Word Keys. See MS Word help.
