Hello Archos community,

I have just picked up my Gen10 XS a couple of hours ago. I'm a total newbie with Android, this is my first device with this OS.

The tablet is for my wife and she needs to type Romanian text with specific accented characters (ie ș, ă, î, ț). This is a must-have feature. Without this, I'll probably try to return the tablet.

It never crossed my mind that Android would not have 100% proper support for this! Linux does and Windows does, so I expected nothing less from Android. It seems the situation is not rosy, at least in Android 4.0. However, Android 4.1 seems to include a Romanian layout, but that is a virtual keyboard.

What I'm particularly interested in is having the physical keyboard configured with the Romanian layout. To clarify, I don't want a keyboard with Romanian characters painted on it, only the software layout to be Romanian. That is when pressing such keys [ ] ; ' they should produce such characters ă î ș ț

How can I set this up?

In Settings/Language & Input, what does this mean: "Key layout for the external USB keyboard"? Is that the physical keyboard that comes with XS or a different keyboard that I could plug in?

Thank you

I join a question: how to change a language layout (in my case to the Russian) on the physical Archos XS keyboard?

I will answer the question: in my case it was necessary to put the "Russian Keyboard" program from PlayMarket

So this application enabled your physical keyboard to type Russian characters?
Can you tell me who makes this app? Searching PlayStore for "Russian Keyboard" gives more than one result.

In the program there is a possibility of control both the virtual keyboard, and physical coverboard.
