Hawaiian Keyboard

Did you know you can add the ‘okina and kahakō to correctly display your Hawaiian words by activating a Hawaiian keyboard on your Windows or Apple computer?  Once you install the keyboard you need to turn it on. Then on a Windows machine, you'll press the right-Alt key on your keyboard plus a vowel to create the kahakō, on a Mac you press the Option key then the letter.  It's easy once you you've done it a few times!  Here are some resources that can help you.
