How do I add nekudot (vowel points) to Hebrew text in Word 2010 on Windows 8?

With older versions of Windows I would follow these instructions: place the cursor after the letter I wanted to add to, enter caps-lock mode, and press shift + the key code for the particular nikkud. This doesn't work in Word 2010, however. What do I do instead?

Seems like a superuser question – Shmuel Brin Dec 12 '13 at 2:08
That's what I thought too, but superuser didn't know. I figured there must be someone here with the same problem. – Eliyahu Dec 12 '13 at 2:41
Already asked on Super User (so I won't migrate like I was about to). – Monica Cellio Dec 12 '13 at 2:56
@Eliyahu go take a look now :) – Shmuel Brin Dec 12 '13 at 3:23
Oh thank you! Well I was right, I did have to come here to get my answer over there. – Eliyahu Dec 12 '13 at 3:47

You have to use alt-codes. Here is a PDF chart. Be sure to read the instructions on the bottom of it. If you do any significant amount of work with this, I recommend a keyboard macro program to save a lot of aggravation.
