|How do you cope in Canada? Do you have to choose between French and US/English keyboards, or is some kind of hybrid keyboard available.|
Maybe it's a multilingual/programmable keyboard (if such a thing exists). It's just I'm confused with your reference to 'blue'. I associate the' blue' with extra functions, associated with the Fn key (Prnt Scrn/Vol+-/Brigtness+-. etc.
I was assuming a standard English/USA-type, keyboard.
Not heard of a USA International option. I would have thought you'd be, location; Canada. Keyboard; English USA (Canada?)... Whatever, I'm UK so have a different K'board and UK version of Windows 8 - thus maybe not best placed to advise further....
But, out of curiosity:
Did this delay/duplication only occur after you changed the language/region settings?
If so, try another Language/keyboard setting, maybe English/Canada, or English USA options, or whatever.
If it persists as a specific key problem in spite of language/region changes:
The @ and " keys are separate keys - yes?
They're dual function keys. Probably apostrophe, as primary, and +shift-key for quotation mark?
What happens with and without the use of the shift key? Do you get the same lag/repetition with both characters on each key?
A long shot: I wonder if some keys could be a little flakey; a biscuit crumb under a key, or liquid spill on the keyboard?
Apologies for the meandering reply... Just thinking aloud.
