        Bug Description:
        KeyEvent is still missing VK values for many keyboards.

        This is related to RFE 4068241 and all the reports related to that one.

        Using a Hebrew Keyboard the keys i) [, < Tav] ii) [. > Final Tzadeek] and iii)
        [; : Final Fay] all map to VK_UNDEFINED.

        Likewise with a Danish Keyboard (and I assume also Norwegian) the keys for their last
        3 letters of the alphabet i) [ae] ii) [oe] iii) [aa] also all map to VK_UNDEFINED.

        In the case of Hebrew the other Hebrew letters map to the English letters on the same
        key (like Alef maps to VK_T) which is fine, for the 3 problem keys there already mappings
        to the English Symbols on the same key (for example using Hebrew [' " ,] maps to VK_COMMA)
        so it would not help to make [, < Tav] map to VK_COMMA, as that would cause a Comma to be
        typed instead of a Tav.

        This makes Screen Recording and Playing back very difficult as these 6 keys (3 in each
        language) can not be recorded.
