Re: Slovak Language with the PC
- This may address part of your problem, or your problem may lie
elsewhere. All fonts are NOT created equal. SOme simply do not have
the Slovak or East European characters that are called out by the keys
On the other hand, I also started out using the software changes to
switch langages, and I got most of the characters but not all. That
seems to be be fixed since I brought back a Slovak keyboard from
Slovakia. My original was a PS/2 keyboard that does not work with my
new computer and USB connection (it takes both a mechanical adapter
and evedently a signal votage change to switch to USB). So on this
last trip I bought a Slovak USB board. This is what I get when I make
the switch from EN to SK on numbers 1-9 and on to \:
;+¾èýáíé=´ò I had to do that to see how thez come out on the
internet. Plus there is úäô§,.-
I did notice the Word spell checker does not handle "don´t" as
it does the normal English "don't"
I would check the font zou are calling up, zou maz have to change to
a "central european font".
