Tecnologi-ovedì: Typing Accent Marks

20:42

Argh!!! Are you or your students foiled by typing accents? Here are some ways to get those accent marks into your communications.

On a PC:
You can change your keyboard  by following the directions here.
You can open the Character Map and copy/paste it. 
You can try the method using ALT + numbers typed on the number pad, which doesn't really work if you have a portable computer.

In Microsoft:
You can choose Insert->Special Character.
In Word, you can click the ALT button & the accent mark followed by the letter it is to appear above.


In OpenOffice:
You can create a Macro following the instructions here.

On a Mac
You click OPTION(in the old days this was Open Apple) & the accent mark followed by the letter it is to appear above.

But, I've saved the best, most universal one, least daunting one, for last:
It's called Typeit.


It helps you type symbols, currencies, IPA symbols, and accent & diactrical marks for more than 20 languages. Just type it all in the box, select, copy and paste!
