Hi,

I have an old Velo 1 running Win CE 1.0

It has a US Keyboard and the US WinCE version. But i wanna be able to type Umlauts?

Can anybody help me?

Like either tell me a keyboard shortcut, or tell me how to change the file that allocates the keys, or tell me of a nice program to insert the Umlauts or just anything?

VIELEN DANK

I don't know the Velo at all, but would suggest this awkward shortcut. Create a document template with only a few characters on the top line, being the characters with umlauts you wish to use in your writing, and set this as your default document if possible. If not, just open this every time you wish to write something. Using keyboard shortcuts you can jump from your last line back to the top of the document (Fn Home), select and copy a character, then jump back to the bottom (Fn End) and paste the character. Terribly, painfully slow, I know, but better than nothing. When done, delete the top line and save under a new name.

There are character map applets for Windows CE, but I don't know offhand if any of them support Windows CE 1.0. I believe there's a key combo for each of the umlauted vowels, which should match the key combos used in desktop Windows for the same characters. (I know this works in CE 2.0 and above, but I'm not sure about CE 1.0.) You can open the character map in Windows on your PC and point to the character you want to see the key combo needed, and then try it on the CE 1.0 H/PC. (I believe that requires using NumLock, though - you can't do it using the digit keys along the top of the keyboard - and I don't know if the Velo 1 has a NumLock feature. I have a Casio A-10 running CE 1.0, and it doesn't have NumLock.)
