Ctrl + Accent, then letter always works in MS Word.
Entering International Characters
There is a number of ways of entering international characters and symbols.
a.. Use Character Map.
b.. Use Alt + <the character code entered on the numeric keypad>
c.. Use the US International Keyboard
Entering International Characters - Character Map
Start - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - Character Map and transfer via the clipboard.
Entering International Characters - Alt + Character Code
Holding down alt and pressing the character code on the numeric keypad will enter that character. The keyboard language in use must support entering that character. If your keyboard supports it the code is shown on the right hand side of the status bar in Character Map else this section of the status bar is empty.
However there is two ways of entering codes. The point to remember here that the characters are the same for the first 127 codes. The difference is if the first number typed is a zero of not. If it is then the code will insert the character from the current character set else it will insert a character from the OEM character set.
E.G., Alt + 0 then 6 then 5 then release Alt enters the letter A
Entering International Characters - US International Keyboards
Install the US International keyboard. Start - Control Panel - Regional And Language Options - Languages - Details - Add. While here review the Key Settings to switch keyboards or turn on the Language Bar (Advanced Text Services must not be disabled).
This works in two modes. Right Alt or Shift + Right Alt + another key and also by pressing dead keys (such as accents). On non US Keyboards the Right Alt key is called Alt Gr.
Right Alt is the same key as Ctrl + Left Alt on the US International keyboards, and on almost all keyboards except the standard US keyboards where left and right keys are treated the same . This is a reason why Ctrl + Alt should not be used to set hotkeys. Also F12 should also not be used for hotkeys as it's reserved for attaching a debugger.
The Right Alt Keys
Key Description
Right Alt + 1 i
Right Alt + 2 â²
Right Alt + 3 â³
Right Alt + 4 â¤
Right Alt + 5 €
Right Alt + 6 1/4
Right Alt + 7 1/2
Right Alt + 8 3/4
Right Alt + 9 '
Right Alt + 0 '
Right Alt + - â¥
Right Alt + = ã—
Right Alt + Q ã¤
Right Alt + W ã¥
Right Alt + E ã©
Right Alt + R (r)
Right Alt + T ã¾
Right Alt + Y ã¼
Right Alt + U ãº
Right Alt + I ã*
Right Alt + O ã³
Right Alt + P ã¶
Right Alt + [ <<
Right Alt + ] >>
Right Alt + \ Not Sign
Right Alt + A ã¡
Right Alt + S ãÿ
Right Alt + D ã°
Right Alt + L ã¸
Right Alt + ; Pilcrow Sign
Right Alt + ' â´
Right Alt + Z ã¦
Right Alt + C (c)
Right Alt + N ã±
Right Alt + M âµ
Right Alt + , ã§
Right Alt + / â¿
Shift + Right Alt + 1 â¹
Shift + Right Alt + 4 â£
Shift + Right Alt + = ã·
Shift + Right Alt + Q ã„
Shift + Right Alt + W ã…
Shift + Right Alt + E ã‰
Shift + Right Alt + T ãž

Shift + Right Alt + ; â°
Shift + Right Alt + ' â¨
Shift + Right Alt + Z ã†
Shift + Right Alt + C â¢
Shift + Right Alt + N ã‘
Shift + Right Alt + , ã†
The Dead Keys
The dead keys are the apostrophe ('), quotation mark ("), accent grave (`), tilde (~), and caret(^). If these are pressed the system waits for the next key. If it is in the list below then it enters the symbol character else it enters both keys seperately. These work with uppercase where appropiate.
Key Description
' then C ã†
' then e ã©
' then y ã½
' then u ãº
' then i ã*
' then o ã³
' then a ã¡
" then e ã«
" then u ã¼
" then i ã¯

` then e ã¨

` then i ã¬
` then o ã²
~ then o ãµ
~ then n ã±
^ then e ãª
^ then u ã»
^ then i ã®
^ then o ã´
^ then a ã¢
Like Accessibility there is a trick here with general applicability. Normally Caps Lock is on or off and stays on or off untill the key is pressed again. This can be changed to act like a typewriter at Start - Control Panel - Regional And Language Options - Languages - Details - Key Settings and one can select whether another Caps Lock press will turn off Caps Lock or if pressing the Shift key will turn it off like on a typewriter.

    Here is the full table

    Special ALT Characters
    Just hold alt and type the three characters code corresponding to the character you want.



  • Ginko
    Ginko Oct 17, 2008

    For example, to type " you hold alt, then 34 (or 034), when you leave alt you get the character.

    For other characters refer to table Special ALT Characters

It's possible that you have hit the Num Lock key while you had another key pressed. Try the following combinations, one at a time, to see if any of them work. Be sure to test each one before moving on to the next one.

CTRL and NUM LK
Shift and NUM LK
ALT and NUM LK

A lot of times characters will swap places if one of these combinations has been pressed, and pressing the combination again should switch it back. Let me know how it goes! If this doesn't work, we'll try something else.

    Dear Sir , If you start copying a Class 10 / 11


    I understand the pain and how difficult it is to work on a science document!!!!!!!!!!!!
    By the way if you are using the office suite applications such as Word 2007 or word 2010, you can insert the symbols easily.
    To insert a symbol or special character into your document, follow these steps in Word 2007:
    1. Position the cursor where you would like to insert the symbol or character
    2. Open the Insert ribbon
    3. Click Symbol in the Symbol section
    4. A menu will appear with a small selection of symbols
    5. If you don't see the symbol or character you'd like to insert, click More Symbols
    6. Use the controls to select between symbols and special characters. Additional tools on the symbols tab will help you expand or narrow your selection
    7. When you find your symbol or special character, click it and then click Insert
    8. When you're done, click Close
    The symbol or special character will appear at the appropriate place in your document.
    Hope this helps!!!

    Well, I am helpless regarding developing a keyboard with all those scientific symbols,.LOL

    I am Afrikaans speaking and my language needs the ^ and " on e's and o's. I can't find it on my new laptop


    There's 2 ways (I'm assuming Windows):

    1) In Start --> Programs --> Accessories.  There's a program in there called 'Character Map' that has all the accents and characters in.  Simply copy (CTRL + C) and paste (CTRL + V) the letters to where you need them.

    2) If you have a numeric keypad on your laptop, turn on the NUM LOCK, and hold the ALT key down while pressing 3 numbers, and you get a character out.  On a UK keyboard, for example, ALT 155 is "¢" and ALT 156 is "£".  Which character you get out for a specific number depends upon which country you're in (the kb layouts are different), so I can't give you a list.  A little experimentation will enable you to find frequently-used ones.

    The @ sign and # sign does not work on this key board and I cannot get to work out how to make it work (I am not on that keyboard at the moment)


    http://www.tedmontgomery.com/tutorial/altchrc.html <--- that link should come in very handy for many people who read this, you can work around holding shift then hitting the 3 key for get #, as you can see you hit Num Lock then Alt and 35 on the ten key pad at the right to get the same character, give it a try it's fun and useful. If Num Lock won't work then try Alt + 35 and see if that does the trick.
