Re: How to type Vietnamese on Windows?


Hi Marco
I guess you're using the built in input keyboard in Windows, which I see that no Vietnamese people use it, don't know the reason. I suggest you to download and use UniKey, which is a popular Vietnamese keyboard. Get it from
Follow the instruction to download and install, then run it. The first combo box is to choose the character set. Press Home to go to the first item there. NVDA say something like UniCode 1 of 17. The second combo box is to choose input method. Choose whatever you're familiar, then press Enter.
Other program is Gõ Tiếng Việt, which I don't use much. You can search google for it if you want.
