How do you include accents and such when writing comments?


I cannot seem to figure out how to write "á" or "é" or "ñ", etc. when making comments. I have tried using the Alt commands, but it does not seem to work with my laptop. I do not remember if it worked with the numberpad on my keyboard at work.

Hola DanRivera:

Here is an answer I recently wrote about typng Spanish Characters. ----> Vikingo's Tiny Program

The program is a piece of cake. I use a desktop computer. I have not used it on a laptop but if the keyboard has the "Windows" key referred to, it should work.

Firefox has language add-ons for this sort of thing, I use this one: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/459

I don't seem to have any problem using the Alt key and numbers when in a big hurry but the above site I use very frequently for stories and comments and such that I can just copy and paste anywhere. The above site is free and it allows a fast typist to just hold down the Ctrl key to get the needed accents and also the upside down ? mark. I type the spanish text from my class work book, select all and copy and paste into Word and it works perfect. That way I can put any translation right below the spanish text and email off to my friends in class in .doc format.

Hope this helps

Yay! Thank you! At least this is one way to do it. I don't suppose you know how to do it while remaining on this site do you? - danrivera, ABR 11, 2010
