Keyboards:

There is a way in Windows to switch the keyboards. I have it set up that a little icon appears next to the clock in the bottom right corner. Right now it says EN for English and I can switch it to FR for français by holding Left ALT + Shift. (Or just clicking on the icon and switching it there. Apparently you can create a custom key combination to switch the keyboards too - fancy!)

On a Mac there are shortcuts for the accented letters. And then there's always the 'Special Characters' box you can open - all the shortcuts are listed in there. I'm not on my Mac right now so I cannot look them up. Hopefully someone here can get that to you.

I made this cheat sheet to know how to get the letters when I'm typing. To get one of the characters, hold down the Alt key and type the numbers in.

128 Ç 133 à 138 è 143 Å
129 ü 134 å 139 ï 144 É
130 é 135 ç 140 î 147 ô
131 â 136 ê 141 ì 148 ö
132 ä 137 ë 142 Ä 149 ò


Hope this helps!
