What are Ancient Language Keyboards?

Ancient Language Keyboards allow us to type in different languages, like Greek or Hebrew, by mapping the ancient language characters to our physical keyboard. In previous version of Logos we did this automatically, but that only worked inside of the Logos application. In Logos 4 and 5, we've opted to install new keyboards at the Operating System level. This has the significant advantage of allowing you to install and learn one keyboard and use it not only in Logos but also in any other Unicode-aware application (including Microsoft Word or the Google search bar). The other advantage to this approach is that if you have a keyboard you've already learned which you prefer instead of the ones we've designed, as long as it is a Windows and Unicode-compatible keyboard, it will function properly in Logos.

Installation Instructions

To begin, select one of the Logos keyboards below.

Clicking the link will download a self-extracting file. Follow the instructions below to extract and install the keyboard.

Step 1: Extract the Installer
  • Open the self-extracting file you downloaded above.

Example:

  • Click the "Browse..." button and select your Desktop.
  • Choose "Unzip" to extract the installer.
  • A folder will appear on the desktop. You can now close the extractor.
Step 2: Installing the extracted Keyboard
  • Open the folder that was extracted to your Desktop.
  • It should contain a folder and the PDF Manual for the selected keyboard.
  • Open the folder (example: kbdlbgr").
  • Right-click the "Setup" file and choose "Run as administrator" to install.
    Windows XP: just double-click the "Setup" file.

You will need to repeat this process for each desired keyboard.
