Default Can Wizard (or Universal) show foreign characters?

Hello
I work in Denmark and live in Sweden and would very much like to know if the built in keyboard can be used to write extended characters like . Even danish are important. Is there any fn+ or special key combination that can be used on the english versions of Wizard and Universal?


Regards

Johan

If it it doesn't do it out of the box, there will be software pretty quickly that can do it. Of course the OS maker (Microsoft) should have it in the first place.

Keep an eye out here and you will get the info when someone puts out the software:

If its no in the WWE model, at the very least, I'm sure these guys would come out with their own utility to ensure that they can sell more of these devices in the Scandinavian market:

The character mapping for the K-Jam's keypad:

Basically you enter one of the characters down below, and when the cursor is just after it, you press the "Sym" command (meaning the "dot" in the bottom left corner of the keypad and the "Space" key)

Letters (both CAPS and lower case) => various international characters (I don't have time to list them all, but play around with it and see what you find...I will list the letters that also produce symbols)

r (and R) →
o (and O) → (and )
p (and P) →
a (and A) → (and )
c (and C) →
1,2,3...9,0 → No effect
~ → @ (vice versa)
! (and ?) → ?
# → * (vice versa)
$ →
% → ^
& (and - _ +) → - _ +
( → [ { <
) → ] } >
` → nothing
= → nothing
. , : ; → all interrelated
' → "
/ → \ |


Most of the Western Eur./Scand. characters are there. Those that tolgatasgin mentioned are all there except: ğ

Default Thank you

That makes me much less worried. We'll see what ROM language version I get but I can apparently be assured that the keyboard is useful for my languages.

And finally we can use text-prediction when typing on this thing. I can't wait to get my hands on one.

Not really useful much, as not all characters can be entered and it is way time consuming and tedious. There should be a definition of national charatcters somewhere in the system, we could amend. Hope somebody brings it up.

Default Turkish Characters,

Tolga ,

I cannot input any Turkish characters, (probaby I could not find how to), but when I syncronize with outlook I can see all Turkish characters (- ,-, -, ş-Ş, İ, ı) without any problems.
