technology for Spanish?
posted by Claire on .
Could you give me a link where I can try and download accent marks? I have tried going on some sites and I can't download accent marks.
I tried doing alt with 164, etc. But with a screen reader, alt and then 1 has another function so i can't do an accent.
A week or more ago, Mathmate posted this for French, so there has to be one for Spanish, too.
"You may also want to consider adding a keyboard language to which you can switch when you type in French texts. See for example:
On your regular keyboard, making sure you have a number pad at the right (you can't do the following with the numbers across the top of the regular keyboard), try this if you have a PC:
Hold down the Alt key as you press 0225 on the number pad = á (accent over lower-case "a"). Here are some other codes. Just remember to hold down the Alt key as you press these numbers on the number pad:
0233 = é
0237 = í
0241 = ñ
0243 = ó
0252 = ü
0250 = ú
0192 = À
0201 = É
0205 = Í
0209 = Ñ
0211 = Ó
0220 = Ü
0218 = Ú
0191 = ¿
0161 = ¡
You can see all the codes in here:
Pay attention only to the "Char" and "Code" columns; ignore the symbols & and # and ; -- know that you are only going to use Alt and 0 and the three-number codes for the accented letters and other symbols you want.
If you are on a PC, with windows, go to control panel, regional and languages, keyboard, add language.
ñ % é
Yes!! Yes! Yes!!!! I've got it working!
Thank you so much, I changed the keyboard and then did alt and it worked.
I'll be really happy if the screen reader can read in Spanish, too!
No, it can't read Spanish... I will still have to listen letter for letter.
