I have an English keyboard and I need to know the best way for typing Spanish and Portuguese diacritics in programs other than Microsoft Word, for example when searching in Google or when subtitling on www.dotsub.com. Any suggestions or links would be greatly appreciated.

Install Brazilian ABNT2 keyboard layout Apr 13, 2007

Hello Aaron,

I have a laptop that I bought in Australia and use the ABNT2 keyboard layout on it. Simply install this layout that comes shipped with latest versions of Windows.

Another possibility is found here:

http://www.wikihow.com/Type-Unicode-Characters

Lastly, learn how to use unicode char codes with the keyboard. You will find how in the bottom of the guide following the link above.

Hope that helps.

Lincoln

Do you mean ASCII codes? Apr 13, 2007

I know these ones by heart:

á = Alt + 0225
é = Alt + 0233
í = Alt + 0237
ó = Alt + 0243
ú = Alt + 0250
ñ = Alt + 0241

Á = Alt + 0193
É = Alt + 0201
Í = Alt + 0205
Ó = Alt + 0211
Ú = Alt + 0218
Ñ = Alt + 0209

¿ = Alt + 168
¡ = Alt + 173
« = Alt + 0171
» = Alt + 0187

I hope that helps
