Using Greek keyboard on Nexus7
« on: December 27, 2012, 05:24:31 AM »
I shall be really surprised if anyone can answer this one but absolutely delighted if somebody does. I am learning Greek and the course I am using runs very well on Nexus. However one thing I can't figure out is how to add the stress mark for Greek words. Changing to Greek keyboard is no problem but can't find out how to add the stress mark - so I'm gertting zero scores on all my tests. Can anybody help?

I'm sorry, I don't know what a hackers keyboard is. On Nexus you can ask for different language keyboards to be available. I have asked for the Greek Alphabet keyboard on which are 8 'vowel' letters, any one of which may require a stress mark. On a normal PC when using a Greek alpha keyboard the apostrophe (not used in Greek) is used before a 'vowel' to add the stress mark. Any further thoughts would be very useful

Did you try these suggestions Deadhead? I see you started another thread on the same subject and wasn't sure whether you lost this one. Please let us know where we are at so we can merge the two.

Ok, on the hackers keyboard there is a symbol just to the left of the apostrophe. It looks like an o with an accent. Or a squat 6.  Hit that then a vowel. Ό έάύμ́ό ΏΆΈ. Is that it?
