Accenting flash card answers


Is there a way to place accents in written flashcard answers that is faster than using the mouse to point and click on the accented vowel in the table below?

This are instructions to add another language keyboard. This is the sequence used in Windows Vista and I´m sure it´s similar with other systems:

Start - Control Panel - Clock, Language, and Region - Regional and Language Options - Keyboards and Languages

From here you can add the option of being able to change between English keyboard and many other keyboard languages.

After selecting the Spanish keyboard, you type an accented vowel by first hitting the key for ' and " (just to the right of semicolon key) followed by the appropriate vowel. Also, ñ is the semicolon key.
