Does anyone know an easy & effective way to have/make the Spanish accent marks available on a traditional English (American) keyboard? I do not have the right side number keys (like on a calculator) just the ones accross the top. Please help! Melissa

Hola Mellissa, Here is a link that was posted either here or on the Like Crazy forum. Prior to this I was using a method that required numbers and the alt key. This is much better.Just run it when needed. http://www.onehourprogramming.com/spanish-accents/ Saludos, Rich

Using the United States International Keyboard is also an easy way to do it. You can get the instructions on how to use it from Google.

If you are using a mac us keyboard; do the following: á = hold down Option and e, then type a é = hold down option and e, then type e í = hold down option and e, then type i ó = hold down option and e, then type o I imagine the pattern is clear, there are also ways to type ¿ and ñ for those interested. Hope this helps.

If you're looking to type non-English characters in general, try installing an international keyboard as suggested above or setting up an AutoHotKey (Windows only). If it's just the circumflex you're looking for, this web page has what you're looking for:
