Subject: [GERMAN-BOHEMIAN] Typing unlauts and other diacriticals
For those who have Windows XP, it is possible to setup your English
to type European diacriticals.
This URL instructs you how to set up your keyboard for
US International English.
If you are a touch typist it does not take very long to get used to this
You just have to remember to touch the space bar after typing these keys
` ~ ^ ' " when you want those symbols and not a diacritical
The URL explains how the special keys work. It does not take long
to set it up and it saves a lot of time overall if you use the marks in
any language very often.
I translate German and have found that by setting up my keyboard this
way I can capture German text with all the correct diacriticals in OCR,
paste them to a text file which keeps the umlauts intact and then run
text through translation software to get me started.
For those who do not want to alter their keyboard layout there is an
of using a combination of Alt and numbers from the numeric pad.
combination results in a specific letter with a diacritical mark.
Sometimes letters generated with the alt + numbers option will Email as
characters. Letters with diacritcals generated by he US
English keyboard usually transmit in Email with the diacriticals intact.
