Since this IS an advanced course, It is
work handed in for a grade shall be typed.
(You would not dream of handing in handwritten
documents in other courses; this shall be the same case here.) All computers are loaded with Cyrillic fonts in the UVM Language Resource Center.
Additionally, this web site contains links to download needed fonts, printer drivers and keyboards for your own computer (see below).
shall be sent over the Internet as attached files. I shall make

up Cyrillic on your computer
you are using XP or VISTA, go to
>SETTINGS, >CONTROL PANEL, >REGIONAL and LANGUAGE
OPTIONS. In the drop-down menu go
to >LANGUAGE and click DETAILS. Click >ADD. In the language list find >RUSSIAN and click >OK. When the panel closes, click
OK again. You have Cyrillic using the Russian keyboard. The screen TRAY will now show an EN or RU.
Change the language by clicking in the tray or toggle with SHIFT + ALT. Download the ASDF PHONETIC
keyboard @ http://tlt.its.psu.edu/suggestions/international/bylanguage/russian.html Clear directions are given on this page.

web site contains down loadable fonts and keyboard drivers if you are
using something other than XP.
There are TWO standard Russian keyboards. I recommend neither, but rather the so-called "phonetic" or "homophonic"
keyboard. In this layout, most Russian letters are found where their English equivalents would be. This speeds typing.
