How to use an English keyboard to type Greek letters
Using an English keyboard in symbol font, you can make a fairly accurate reproduction of a koine Greek text.
The following list of Greek letters can be typed on a standard English keyboard using the symbol font. The line of phonetically spelled Greek letters below are followed by the keys on an English keyboard which correspond to each symbol keystroke. Upper and lower case work in the same way as on an English keyboard.
alpha, beta, gamma, delta, epsilon, zeta, eta, theta, iota, kappa, lambda, mu, nu, xi, omicron, pi, rho, sigma, tau, upsilon, phi, chi, psi, omega
Notice that a sigma used as the final letter of a word must be keyed differently than a regular sigma used at the beginning of a word or within a word. A final sigma is typed by keying a capital "vee" while in the symbol font.
Aspiration marks can be made with single apostrophes in whichever font suits the look you want.
