    Can' t type in browser latvian characters.


    Hello!
    In word documents apostrophe button is dead and works properly, but in web it is not dead and I can' t type latvian letters, such as āēļšņ (copied it from word document). When I write in internet I get 'a'e'l's'n.

    I searched in internet for possible answers, nothing works. In browser settings everything seems to be ok - input language is set latvian.
    If someone have any idea, will be glad to hear it.


    Hope for help

    :)

    Will Windows Phone 7.8 feature new languages?

    It's the Latvian language I'm talking about. There are some characters such as A with line on top of the character (ā) as well as n with a comma under it (ņ) that I believe cannot be typed in using the normal keyboard. I would be happy to be proven wrong though.

    Hacking WM6 text entry

    Hello everybody,

    I've recently got myself a Samsung I600 smartphone and upgraded to WM6. My native language is Latvian, therefore I would like to write emails and SMS messages in Latvian. In Latvian writing, there are some special characters with diacritical marks, for example,
    ā ē ū ī č š ķ ļ, etc. (hope they display correctly).

    The great thing is that all symbols display correctly - if I sync with Outlook, all the special symbols in contact names, e-mails and other items are retained, and the web browser displays pages in Latvian with no problems.

    Sadly, it's not possible to enter all the special symbols, and there's no T9 dictionary for Latvian. When writing messages, there's an option to get some special symbols by pressing star (*) on the keypad and selecting the 'Symbols' option. A multiple page
    grid is presented with some symbols like currency symbols, smileys and the like. Also there are some language specific symbols for French and for German, and some symbols that are used in Latvian. I was wondering if it was possible to modify ('hack' if you will) this table to include the symbols I need.
    Can it be done, or is the table hard coded? Again, I know that WM6 can display the simbols I want. Can anyone provide some instructions or links to some helpful resources?

    Another question - how hard it is to add a T9 dictionary? Are there any developer recources on how that can be done?

    Thank you for reading this, I hope to get some help.

    Can' t type in browser latvian characters.

    Hi, which browser are you using? And how are you trying to create these symbols?

    If nothing works, or you want sthg that can be set up for your character set in any context, try AX (freeware):
    AX - Instant, simple accents and special characters

    It comes with a wide range of character sets for different languages and you can create your own.

    Simply type a letter, then the key you've chosen to cycle through the set of symbols for that particular character.

    I used apostrophe button for making a letter with an accent ā, ē etc.
    Actually, without any efforts today my problem disappeared. Now I am wondering what caused this problem - Windows updates? Could it be so?

    Today my apostrophe key stopped working in a browser after adobe player installation. funny, but true. Does it mean that I just need to reinstall a whole system, if such errors start to appear?

    If there's a browser adobe add-on you could try disabling it. Impact of 3rd party plugin more likely than Windows failing here.

    If you want a consistent solution, use the program I've suggested.
