When using Accordance in Windows 10 there is no easy way to type the letter Sin in the search pane of Hebrew language modules like the Hebrew Bible (Biblia Hebraica) Tagged. The letter Shin is easy: Shift+A. For the letter Sin one either has to switch to a Hebrew keyboard layout or use the character map. These are only workarounds that slow down the work flow. A simple combination of keys would serve us users. Nota bene: This is problem has existed in the Windows version for a very long time:

This is bizarre. I just found out by chance that setting the keyboard layout in Windows to GER allows me to type the letter Sin with the combination Alt+a; Shin is Shift+a.
