    Russian mnemonic keyboard misses щ



    It helps a lot that windows8 will include a Russian mnemonic keyboard. Unfortunately a letter is missing entirely, namely the letter щ.
    Any plans to correct this?

    These are the letters on the mnemonic Russian keyboard, notice х occurs twice but no щ:

    ъ1234567890-=
    яшертюиоп[]\
    асдфгхйкл;ь
    зхцвбнм,./




    Here is the standard Russian phonetic keyboard that the English speaking community has used for the past 15 years:[url]http://vkreynin.wordpress.com/2010/01/10/russian-phonetic-keyboard/-Why does windows8 not use this keyboard, it is complete and easier to remember, for example at the place of the English w is the Russian b, both are pronounced the same way.

    I have Windows 8 Developer Preview. My Russian Keyboard (Mnemonic) misses character [ж]
    is there any combination of characters which can write [ж] ?

    [щ] you can write with combination [S][C]

    Count the letters - you get 28 russian letters there,
    there should be 33, so 5 are missing: Щ Ё Э Ы Ч...

    So try Bulgarian Phonetic Traditional keyboard there,
    at least they have 30, you gain two more...

    And that Russian Mnemonic layout is weird,
    I am much more used to Phonetic (ZH): ЯЖЕРТЫ...

    So Microsoft, do you guys care?


    Thanks,
    Oleg.

    ch = ч
    sc = щ
    yu = ю
    yo = ё

    It's true that the Microsoft Phonetic Keyboard (they call it a "mnemonic" keyboard) has a missing character (щ), rendering it pretty useless. Yesterday I was able to create a replacement using Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator.

    I can make my Russian Phonetic Keyboard available. Does this forum provide a way to attach files?

    Well I have rechecked every of russian symbols , and I found them all. And with all this I can say that now this mnemonic layout is pretty great (Better than in past)

    So if you search symbols, here they are:

    Ъ = `(~)
    Ь = ' (")
    Ж = X
    Ш = W (sh)
    Я = Q (ya) , (ja)
    Ю = ju (yu)
    Ч = ch
    Щ = sc
    Ё = jo (yo)
    Э = je (ye)

    Mnemonic keyboard layout mean's that you can type as you hear symbols

    Missing щ


    Hi. On my keyboard it's written by the combination "sc", as with some others too.
