How to Type Vietnamese Text

The first step is to switch the keyboard from English (or your current language) to Vietnamese.  Look at the bottom of right of the screen, we will see “EN” for English. Click on it and select “VI” for Vietnamese.

Next, we will learn how to type special Vietnamese characters:

Huyền = 5
Hỏi = 6
Ngã = 7
Sắc = 8
Nặng = 9

ă = 1
â = 2
ê = 3
ô = 4
đ = 0
ư = [
ơ = ]

Good luck.
