Aleph-Board Hebrew Keyboard and Keyboard Stickers
on Sale now at the Gift Shop
Aleph-Board’s designer is Portland's own Bruce Morris. He and his keyboard are profiled in the February issue of Oregon Jewish Life:
“Bruce’s keyboard pairs each Hebrew letter with the English letter with a similar sound. While existing software (such as Microsoft Word and Davka Writer) offers users an option to use a similar layout, no keyboard existed before Bruce found a manufacturer in Tualatin that could produce his economically. He also has developed supplemental software that makes it easier to type vowels and final letters in Hebrew.
When Bruce made the original keyboard for his own use, he bought three sets of Israeli Hebrew letter stickers to have all the letters he needed. Since Israeli Hebrew typists don’t use vowels, he says it was hard to find sticker sets with vowels. So in addi- tion to selling keyboards, he also sells sticker sets so people can convert a laptop or other keyboard to his system.”
