    For many years I have used MS Word; currently I have Office Professional 2013. I have installed fonts for a number of languages, some of which use non-Latin alphabets. In ‘Region & Language’ in the control panel, I have added the appropriate keyboards; in a couple of cases, I have downloaded third-party keyboards. Usually no problem—I set the language bar for the one I want to use, switch to an appropriate font if necessary, and everything goes smoothly. Not long ago Word encountered some sort of glitch and I had to reboot to get it back. I discovered that some of the languages I had added in ‘Region & Language’ had been deleted. I added them back. Now Word refuses to recognize the non-Latin keyboards. I can type only in the Latin alphabet. I try to reinstall, using the same procedure as always, and it does no good. What is wrong? I didn’t make any changes that I am aware of that would interfere with non-Roman keyboards.

    Apparently there have been two replies. I seem unable to access them. Nothing I click on makes them visible. I don’t get it.

    I only see your reply, where are you seeing that there are two other replies?
    You may need to post a screen shot so we can this information?

    Probably the two replies were spammers whose posts have been removed.

    Before you follow any directions in a forum, check how many posts the person who replied has and when he/she joined.

    Sometimes spammers post links to sites that either cost you $$$ or try to load malware on your computer.
    Long time volunteers here will try to help without costing you money or if something does, you will be told in the post.
