The USB will also contain a handbook in Vietnamese for parents and teachers.
The file is called Handbook041116.pdf. You can read it and print it using Windows.
We strongly recommend to read the handbook that can also be downloaded here.
DoudouLinux is being used at the Long Hải Centre for Social Protection of Children.
DoudouLinux is using Vietnamese keyboard layout as in the following picture when its user chooses Vietnamese to be the system language.
With this keyboard layout, to type “Ă”, users must press “1”. However, as a matter of fact, most computers in Vietnam are using keyboards with English (US) keyboard layout and need to have software like Unikey installed for typing Vietnamese. This means that, to type “Ă”, users must press “A” and “W” (Telex input method), or “A” and “8” (VNI input method). DoudouLinux users should notice this point to know how to type Vietnamese in the software.
