Russian mnemonic keyboard three letters missing: щ ч э - in Office 2013 in Windows 8 Pro or Standard and Windows 7 Pro or Standard

    Question

  • The issue I believed is Windows specific. It only appears to work correctly on a Windows XP system. I can get the keys to work on Windows 7 or Windows 8 system.

    Russian mnemonic keyboard three letters missing: щ ч э

    I have a client that noticed this issue. He is a linguist and he uses the letters quite frequently. He further explained that...

    Russian mnemonic keyboard three letters missing: щ ч э
    On Windows 8 there is a mnemonic Russian keyboard.
    Unfortunately there are three letters which I can not find: щ, ч and э.

    These three letters exist in the standard Russian keyboard. They are at the following location (in the US  keyboard): o,x and '.

    I also did a test on a Windows 7 machine running office 2013 and still the letters are missing as described.

    The client explained without these three letters the mnemonic keyboard is useless

    Your help to address this issue is greatly appreciated.

  • I think it is by design. You can use Preview to show the keyboard layout.

  • For "э" press "y" and "e" back to back quickly :) Just found it. Will let you know if I find other combinations too:)

  • щ= type "s" then "c" one after the other

    ч= type "c" then "h" one after the other

    э= type "y" then "e" one after the other
