Default Very off topic Hudl 2

Google has not been my friend and I don't know where else to ask.
Wife has a Hudl 2 and has been messing around with ebay. She finds something
she likes, hits "Buy Now". She does not have account but she was going to
use mine to sign in or create an account.
No keyboard appears, thus she can't do anything.
I feel that I'm missing the obvious.
Anybody help?

Thanks.

"Tip 7: Change the keyboard settings

To change the Hudl 2ís keyboard,
tap and hold the screen then tap

Settings - Language & input.

Tap the options icon to the right of
Google Keyboard to make any changes to the
existing setup, for example Gesture Typing
lets you write by sliding from letter to letter."

There's a picture of some sort of keyboard in this one.

The application called "Google Keyboard" is supposed
to be drawing the keyboard for you.

Search terms are "Google Keyboard" or "OSK" which
is a shorthand for an On-Screen Keyboard.

Yes, I found that before asking here, but it does not tell me how to display
the keyboard to log into ebay.
Thanks for the reply.

It's probably the same gesture that a regular
Android would use.

You'd also need to know your "version" of OS, as
the features change with time. There is mention
here of a "long press" on a Menu button, to activate
the keyboard.

Now that I will give a try when she finishes playing games. I'm still XP and
know very little of these Android devices. I'm not really too sure of how to
turn the Hudl off.
Thanks for your kind help.

See Paul's answer for the proper answer.

However, especially if she quite likes the Hudl 2, get her one of these
nice cases for it for Christmas:
https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_f...p2045573.m1684
.. You could even not tell her that it's got a keyboard in it!

We bought such a case for an old lady friend with a tablet (I think hers
was a Lenovo) last year; I think we paid about thirtysomething for it,
but either they've come down a lot or Hudl ones are cheaper. At the
prices these start at, you could afford to go a long way up the price
list - I haven't looked at any of the descriptions, but I'd look to see
if there's any mention of the quality of the keys. (Even a cheap one
would be easier to use than the on-screen one, but you might as well get
the best you can. Oh, and make sure it says it has holes for things in
the right places - sockets, the camera; if they say they're for the Hudl
2 they should anyway, but do check.)

Our friend was delighted with it - just the case, to protect her tablet,
and then when she found it had a keyboard as well, she was over the
moon!

(Basically, it makes the tablet look like a laptop. But don't mention
that fact, as tablet enthusiasts maybe don't want a laptop.)

I was very impressed with it, I'd no idea these things existed. But. She
said that she would never use it, so that is that.
Cheers for the idea.
