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 + Y ãœ
Shift + Right Alt + U ãš
Shift + Right Alt + I ã

Shift + Right Alt + P ã–
Shift + Right Alt + \ â¦
Shift + Right Alt + A ã

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 o ã³

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.

    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

Number pad does not work


  1. Find Alt code.

    Numeric Alt codes for symbols are listed in Alt codes list. Check for Alt code of symbol you want to input.

  2. Enable Num Lk.

    You may need to simultaneously press ["FN" and "Scr Lk"] keys. That's the combination for "Num Lock" on some laptops. Look at the picture - the "Num Lk"/"Scr Lk" button is highlighted there.

  3. Hold down "Alt" key.

    Some laptops require you to hold both "Alt" and "FN" keys.

  4. Input Alt code of symbol on Keypad.

    Do this while holding "Alt" button pressed. Type Alt code on your laptop's numeric keypad. It's highlighted on the picture.

  5. Release all the keys.

    After you release all the keys alt symbol should be entered. If all this stuff didn't work - check if you have really enabled the "Num Lock" first. Remember that green indicator should shine near the lock symbol on your laptop's keyboard. If that wasn't the case - try simultaneously holding "FN" and "Alt" keys instead of just "Alt". That just might work.

I just need to know how to use the diacritic/accent mark key on my Aspire 5610 keyboard.


Hi,

I'll be glad to help you out with this. Assuming you have XP, you have 2 choices. Either use the Character Map, or an ALT code.

To access the character map, click

Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Character Map



An ALT code is simply when you hold down the ALT key and press a series of numbers on the keypad to get different symbols. Here's a list of ALT Codes:
