The two most important features of GScript are automatic accentuation and the speed-typing shortcuts (abbreviations, including the various forms of the definite article).
- Automatic accents
- GScript can usually "decide" where to place the accent on Greek words as you type them, based on a number of rules. For example, when you finish typing episkopos GScript will add the correct accent, giving you the Greek word επίσκοπος. If you prefer, you can type the accent yourself—simply by typing the accented vowel twice (epiiskopos).
- There are one- or two-letter abbreviations for about twenty of the commonest words: eg i for είναι and c for έχει.
- In GScript most letters are typed phonetically: for this reason several letters are different from the conventional Windows Greek keyboard. For example, Xi ξ is typed with an x, Psi ψ with the two letters ps and Theta θ with either th or, if you prefer, the traditional q.
Please note that, depending on your system settings, you may need to
enable Greek Language Support: in Windows 98 this is done as follows:
Control Panel | Add/Remove Programs | Windows Setup | Multilanguage Support | Details | Greek
These steps are necessary only if you cannot see the Greek alphabet correctly displayed when you type.
Do not apply the Windows Greek keyboard settings: GScript assumes that a standard European/American keyboard is being used.
