In order to help Foreign Language Students type in different languages, we have implemented a simple solution. To switch in between languages students need only use Left Alt + Shift key combination.
Students no longer need to change the Language settings in the Control Panel. English will always be the default Language and Keyboard.
INSTRUCTIONS TO SWITCH BETWEEN LANGUAGES:
Hold the Left Alt key and simultaneously press the Shift Key.
The following box will appear on top of the screen. Students choose “Hiragana” and they are ready to type in Japanese characters.
Shortcut to change between inputs (Hiragana and Direct Input) ALT + ~ . (A contribution from Cedric Wienold, WorkStudy. He has been a great help. Thank You.)
