you don't need to download anything.
i guess you work in micro$oft windows.

you just have to change settings of the keyboard device (you'll find it in control panel) to Polish (Programmer's) - this one will have all the Polish signs added to the typical US English keyboard layout

Start - Control Panel - Keyboard

Or you can use ASCII codes, hold ALT on your keyboard & type the corresponding number on your numpad []


Buy a Polish keyboard

Hi Lt Navy!
You can get the Polish alphabet at <>
I paid $20 CDN
You can get a trial version first and then pay to use it.
All you do is press your right ALT key and the letter you wish to use and it will pop up on your computer screen and all you do is double click on the letter and it will "magically" appear!

Good luck!
This is quick and easy!

Dzień dobry

Proszę pomoc ...

Can anyone please tell me if there is a tool available to download the polish alphabet to use as a keyboard? I would use this for occasions such as Skyping my friends in Poland - practicing writing/correct spelling.

I use Linux with KDE 4.2.3. If that's what you are using, then on the 'classic' menu, go:

1) K-Menu --> System --> System Settings --> Regional & Language --> Keyboard Layout

2) Click on "Enable Keyboard Layouts"

3) Add "Poland" to the list and make sure it is on top using the arrow keys

4) Click on "Apply"

5) "Polish" fonts will be enabled

Start menu -> ustawienia -> opcje regionalne i językowe

Click on the "klawiatury i języki" tab

Click on "Zmień klawiatury"

Click on Dodaj

When you added Polish, change "Język Domyslny" to Polish so it will run every time you start the computer

That should be all
