In this video youll learn how to type spanish accents and theres funny little characters like the upside down question. Mark on a pc so probably the easiest way of doing this is by installing the international keyboards so lets. Do that now so well click on search type language settings click on english options and add a keyboard then. You can see ive actually already installed this keyboard but if i was doing it the first time id click.

On add a keyboard scroll down to united states international and click on that now weve got our keyboard installed. If you go down to the start bar now youll see next to the clock this little language button so. If its not already selected you can click on that and then click on english international so coming back to. Our document now we can see that to get accented letters we need to use a key combination so to. Get a with the accent going up via acute accent we need to press and hold and then press a.

So lets do that now ill press and hold and a and voila here we have our spanish accented letter. So thats quite a simple way of doing things but if for some reason you cant use this way there. Are other ways to get spanish axes and characters you can also use spanish accent codes so for example to. Get the acute a we can press and hold alt and then type the code 0 to 2 5 so. Now im pressing and holding alt and im typing 0 2 to 5 when i let go of alt you.

Can see we get the accented a one thing to bear in mind with this method is that this only. Works by using the numbers on the key on the right side of the keyboard that number pad if you. Use the numbers on the top that go in a line across the letters it wont work unfortunately so if. You have a laptop where you dont have the number pad there is a way that you can still use. This method just by doing a couple of extra steps im not going to go into that now but if.

Point select then we can copy and paste this into our document this is going to come out really teeny-tiny.

Thank you this word sir its very good a bit bigger and even bigger so thats another simple way of. Getting the symbols that we need for spanish although if youre typing a lot in spanish it can be a. Bit fiddly every time to need to go into the character map and look for the letters and the symbols. So it could be useful to save a separate document where you already save all of the letters and the. Symbols that you need so you can just take them out easily finally theres another very simple way but this.

Only works if youre using a microsoft office document so for example if youre typing in word so you can. Press and hold ctrl apostrophe and then click the vowel that you want so im just gonna change the keyboard. Here because i need to find my apostrophe again so im gonna press and hold ctrl + trophy and a. Vowel oh you have to be very quick lets try this again control wow and here we have again accented.

We press on option and then the axon graph release and then the letter a and then we have by. And thats it and uh weve got our accent and we do the same if we wanted to put that. Accent now over a different letter for example um or hes drinking the beer again uh weve got we needed.

No but we need the accent to appear over the letter e so what do we do in this case. Im going to type that sentence again and then to get it over the letter e we press option and. Then the the grav accent press it and release and then we type the letter e thats the letter over. Which we want the accent and then bier and thats all thats how to get the axon cave now what.

This sentence he ate the sweets now we need this accented character here and how were going to get that. Im going to retype the sentence and then excuse me and now were going to need to get our e. Accent here in e accent so were going to write down the hold down the option key and then were. Going to type the letter e and release and now we have typed the letter over which we want the. Accent which is e and weve got ilamalgi so im going to do that one more time and then we.

Get option e release and then and there is our accented character there now what if we wanted over another. Uh letter for example in irish you know i am in the in the irish language i am something well. Its not related to friendship but if you were doing it to get over another accent you know time uh. I am again uh like that i am and again um we would type you know t and then we. Would have option e and then we type the letter a and then i am thats obviously in a different.

Language uh time i am but thats what how to get that acce there we have our option e and. Then the letter over which we want that accent to appear in french e what if we wanted a capital. E we would say option e and then shift e and thats it okay thats our accented character what about. The axon circumflex this little hat now in on a keyboard its the one that appears over the number six. Its called a carrot and thats the name of the character its called a carrot an axon circumflex a francaise.

And its got a character c-a-r-e-t and how will you get that in the world for example la force in. The forest we type option and then the letter i and then we type the letter over which we want. The accent thats e and then t and weve got our accented character there im going to retype that la. For la for and then we type option i release and then we type e and then t la foreign. In the forest and weve got our accented character and an axon circumflex what if we wanted in all in.

Capital letters l-a-f-o-r we needed now to appear over the capital letter well again we try to press option i. And release and then shift e and then t and weve got our la for re with the capitalized axon. Circumflex and now what about the ccd thats an easy one it its the little hook on the bottom of. A c and that makes the c sound like an s so for example the boy and the girl the. Girl now how were going to get the c city were going to retype this le garcon and together ccd.

Is very easy just option c thats it option c and then o n and weve got our accented character. One more time logar and then option c and thats it and then o n and theres our accented character. And what if it were to appear over a capital letter wed get uh and then were going to say. Option uh were going to press down the shift key here and then option c and then the gas zone. And if its important to have that says indeed if we dont put it on the letter its going to.

Sound like like a k sound so its very important it completely alters the sound the gasoline and the trimmer. The diuresis and in english uh these two these two dots happen on some country names and some boys names. And so on and so forth for example we get raphael and we can get zoe and we can get. Uh iet the a country in the caribbean here i.t and we get leslie and the caribbean islands and so. On and so forth so we get this uh prema or viruses which splits the two suns in the two.

Vowels and so on and so forth is israel israel okay so how do we get that um if we. Want to say for example christmas time and or we need an e and we just press down option u. And release and then the letter over which we wanted e l weve got our accented character there one more. Time n o option u and then e and then l and thats it and weve got our accented character. There the uh prima and one more time what if we were over capital letters there n o and then.

Wed say option u release and then shift e and then l and weve got our accented character the crema. So a couple of other ones we need to look at just very quickly uh this strange oe that is. Kind of almost unique to french so uh were going to its option q its option q thats not a. Mistake that where the two wells is kind of stuck together thats by design here and it happens in a. Number of words this is known as l and thats a unique its a very strange thing it happens in.

A number of words we get for example we get le buff we get ma and liver the wishes and. So on and so forth all of these and were going to uh highlight them just for consistency purposes and. All of these they are they contain this character known as the e and the o and to create that. In on your mac keyboard you simply press um option q option q and well create that and youll be. Familiar with these words look here the heart the i love the beef master my sister and liver the wishes.

One last one that people will sometimes wonder about is this new sound in manana or something in spanish uh. Its not a french character but sometimes people wonder about that where do you get it and um thats just. Option n and you put option n release and then press the n key and that would be the new. Sound but its not particular to french at all so we dont we dont need it in french but sometimes. People ask about that thats how you get accents on a mac keyboard.

United states dash international and you just go back and you close that up but now how do we go. About typing an accent so lets me let me open up wordpad here so youll have the accent keyboards to.
