Find out which keyboards are available for entering script data in Connexion client.
RLIN21 Arabic, Cyrillic, Hebrew, and Latin keyboards
- RLIN21 keyboards. RLIN21 Arabic, Cyrillic, Hebrew, and Latin keyboards were previously created by RLG for use with RLIN21. The Connexion client supports the keyboards to assist catalogers who formerly used RLIN21.
- Windows input keyboards. The client also supports using Microsoft Windows input keyboards to enter these scripts. Catalogers can continue using Windows keyboards or install and use RLIN21 keyboards.
- Difference. RLIN21 keyboards include characters specific to each script. Microsoft keyboards include characters specific to a language written in a particular script.
Example: Using the single RLIN21 Arabic keyboard, generate Arabic script characters for Arabic, Persian, and Urdu instead of switching among separate Microsoft keyboards for each language to enter script data.
Windows provides input languages for using non-Latin scripts for more details.Note: For Chinese, Japanese, and Korean (CJK), you must use Windows Input Method Editors (IMEs). For other supported scripts (Bengali, Devanagari, Greek, Tamil, and Thai), use Windows keyboards. See
RLIN21 Latin keyboard
- Catalogers who formerly used RLIN21 can also install the RLIN21 Latin keyboard with RLIN21-equivalent keystroke shortcuts to enter diacritics and special characters.
- The client has a built-in function. Alternatively, use a window in the client to enter diacritics and special characters:
- Click Edit > Enter Diacritics, select the image or name for a character, and click Insert; or use assigned client keystrokes. Click View > Assigned Keys to view a complete list of client-assigned keys.
- The client supports both methods of entering diacritics and special characters.
