I've wanted these for ages, but the codes don't work on my computer - maybe in UK? Anyone this side of the pond got any suggestions?

I'm on a mac with a UK keyboard and this is what I do. Dont know if it will help.


é = alt e and e again
á = alt e and a
ó= alt e and o
í = alt e and i
ñ = alt n and n again
¡ ( upside down exclamation mark) = alt and 1
¿ ( upside question mark) = alt caps and ?

RE: spanish characters (in reply to HemeolaMan

TO CHANGE YOUR KEYBOARD LAYOUT TO SPANISH CHARACTERS

this is easily switched on windows xp and once you set it up, you can change between the languages by pressing alt+shift

Click start bar > "control panel"

> click "regional and language" options

> click the "languages" tab

> click the button that says "Details..."

>"settings" tab > installed services > click "Add..."

>in the drop down menu scroll down to "spanish (traditional sort) > click ok

you can change the default setting to spanish in the settings tab, but since most of us speak english i think hitting the left ALT + SHIFT keys to switch into spanish mode will work

RE: spanish characters (in reply to HemeolaMan

And for you Win XP users, go to:

Control Panel -
Date, Time, Language and Regional Options -
Regional and Language Options -
'Languages' tab -
'Details' button -
'Add' button -
Choose your input language (what you type) and your keyboard layout (leave this alone unless you know your keyboard layout is different).

Interestingly enough, there are TWENTY different versions of Spanish to choose from. Kinda cool, kinda overwhelming and kinda pointless all at once.

That only works on a German keyboard

Macs and PCs have a keyboard map feature, so that might be an alternative.

RE: spanish characters (in reply to HemeolaMan

The best solution with the UK keyboard is to set the "UK Extended" keyboard, instead of the "UK" one.
With the extended version you can type the accents by pressing apostrophe (button beside 1) and then the vowel.
So if I type "`" and then "a" the result is "à".
"Alt gr" + "#" and then "n" = ñ

To set up the UK extended in Windows go to: Control Panel - Change Keyboard or other input methods - Keyboard and Languages tab - Change Keyboards button and add the language "United Kingdom Extended".

Then select UK Extended from the tray bar.

In Ubuntu and Mac the process is even easier but I don't have them in front of me now.

If you have a US keyboard, there is also US International that works in the same way

RE: spanish characters (in reply to HemeolaMan

Depending on your font being used, these codes can change a little. If you can't get them to work, try a new one.

Also, in MS Word, if you hold down CTRL and press ' (apostrophe), then next vowel you enter will have an accent. This will not work for ñ, ¿, etc.

Thanks! I use Spanish every day I am at work. 90% of my clients speak it. This will help, although most of them cannot read.

RE: spanish characters (in reply to Igglepud

Why would you want to write Spanish if you didnt speak it ?...and if you did then why not just have a Spanish keyboard ... like this one, so you have for example an ñ key , just after the L , so if you want that letter you press it ......¿isn't that easier?

Because then you can’t type English — no apostrophe, for example.

It doesn’t bother those of us who use Macs — you can touch-type any Western European language

RE: spanish characters (in reply to El Kiko

You’re right of course: I'm out of date.

I bought a Spanish typewriter in the early ’80s so I could write my flamenco reviews for Guitar International, and then had the problem with English as mentioned; but I should have realised a computer would be more flexible.

RE: spanish characters (in reply to Paul Magnussen

Exactly .. there's one or two changes .. so maybe you type Cantiña or Cantina in the middle of an (English) sentence anyway ... and everyone , Spanish and English get it anyway...
I dont see the big deal ...

A bit like writing ..Its ...or ...It's ....it would not detract from what you are writing by virtue of typeface ... or whatever ....

in my , small . opinion worse would be, people saying it , meaning spoken ..as it just comes out all wrong , sounds like Caniiyña or something ... and the big one is the word 'Compas '....that only has 2 vowels and both come out wrong ....So the O sounds kind of Or ..and the A sounds 'ahr'....so its comes out as..''Corm-Parhs' ' or something like that .. hard to explain but my small pet hate /Rant
I would rather peolpe just said 'Rhythm' , for example

Com, (short shallow) 'O' ....and... pa' ..hit the 'a' hard... contrary to popular belief in Andalucia , depending on your zone ..and there is no 'R' sound ever .. the last 'S' does really exist . its just a bit 'eaten away . or trialed off .

Compa(s)



its late so i really should post after drink ............................

Hey Kiko, I like the way you use multiple punctuation marks to pace us.

Kinda like Harold Pinter.

I’ve grown quite fussy about such things, because a) I dislike sloppiness in general, and b) it leads to mispronuncations.

For instance , when I was at Len William’s Spanish Guitar Centre in London on the ’60s, everyone pronounced the guitar piece as Lagríma by Tarréga, because no one had both to write the accents in.

Once again illustrating the importance of proper punctuation and grammar if one wishes to make meaning precise.

Goodwill may well be more 'proper' than good grammar, if communication is the goal.

The two are not mutually exclusive, Guitarbuddha. Just out of curiosity, are you referring to Chester's clarification or my endorsement of it?

Cheers,

not bursting a bubble , I know what you mean by the difference between the two , but the sentence itself will let you know which one it is , even if its the wrong one ....

That actually reinforces my point, if you write with a ñ or not it wont matter as we mainly write in English anyway ...so , mas and más,,same thing ....

Thats the good thing about the human brain ... for those of us who have one ...
actually you only need the first and last letter of a word to be right and you can understand ..like this ....

Aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoetnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer be at the rghit pclae.
