Overview - Typing Accents

How do you type accents?

You have a number of options:

  • On Mac, use shortcuts with your standard keyboard
  • On Windows, use shortcuts with the US International keyboard
  • In Word, use "Insert Symbol"
  • Use a country-specific keyboard

We recommend learning and using the shortcuts: they're fast and easy and they work in any software (Word, Firefox, email, etc.). The boxes on this page explain the shortcuts as well as the other methods.
