How to Type in Greek; Accents, Combined Accents, and Punctuation in Polytonic Greek
To type in Polytonic Greek, you must first enable it. The following
instructions are for XP, but are similar to the steps in Vista and
- From the Start Menu, select "Control Panel."
- Select "Regional and Language Options"
- Click the "Languages" tab
- Click "Details..."
- Click "Add..."
- From the "Input Language" dropdown menu, select "Greek"
- Select "Keyboard layout/IME"
- From the dropdown menu, select "Greek Polytonic"and click "OK"
- You are back at the "Text Services and Input Language" box again. Click "Language Bar..."
- Make sure "Show the language bar on the desktop" and "show additional language bar icons in the taskbar" are selected
- Save the settings
You have now enabled Polytonic Greek, and probably have the language
bar on the taskbar at the bottom of your screen, towards the right. To
begin typing in Greek, open up a typing program, email, or webpage,
where you can begin typing. Click on "EN" (assuming you are using an
English-based machine), and select "EL Greek." You may toggle back to
English in the same way.
Select a font that supports Polytonic Greek. "Palatino Linotype" is
one possible choice [or also "Tahoma", "Gentium", "Cardo" etc.]. Now you are ready to type Greek.
