    Is it possible to set the input language for just one field on a form?  I have set up a test form for this, and want people completing the form to be able to enter some text in Hebrew letters.  I have injected some CSS coding to make the field work right-to-left, but need to be able to select a Hebrew character set.  How can I do this?

    Thank you.

    I inspected your form and the second input field is set to right-to-left. However, I am not sure if I understood your question correctly - 'but need to be able to select a Hebrew character set'. If your users want to write in Hebrew they will have to use Hebrew keyboard.  

    If I did not understand your question correctly, please explain in more details what exactly are you trying to achieve.

    As Hebrew goes right-to-left, I have set the field to work in that way, but I do indeed need users to write in Hebrew, e.g. when pressing T, they will get the Hebrew letter 'aleph' (א) instead.

    I'm not concerned about their having to use a Hebrew keyboard as I can display on the form a JPG of a keyboard map so that users can see what's what.

    Thank you.

    If I understood you correctly, the users would be using the English keyboard but the text that they write will be shown in Hebrew. 

    That is not possible. They will have to change the settings of their keyboard to Hebrew.

    I found this webpage - https://www.branah.com/hebrew 

    Maybe you can add the link of that website on your form and ask your user to enter the text there and then copy the text to the form.
