By the way, quick tip – if you want to type “á” quickly on a Windows machine, here’s what you can do:

  1. Hold the left ALT key, keep it pressed down.
  2. On your num-pad (the right-side number keys), type: 0, then 2, then 2, then 5

You can quickly type in special characters this way (although you have to memorize the code).

There are other ways to enable accents when typing, perhaps we will cover this later.

In the meantime, you can use the web accenter tool on this page, or just use these keycodes:

  • á 0225
  • Á 0193
  • é 0233
  • É 0201
  • í 0237
  • Í 0205
  • ó 0243
  • Ó 0211
  • ú 0250
  • Ú 0218
