The Mexican (Spanish) label set
conforms to the Spanish (Latin American) keyboard layout in Windows. The labels are printed on clear
Lexan® so the original key legend shows through;
this allows you to add Spanish labels to your existing
keyboard so that it becomes a bilingual keyboard (Spanish and the original
language of your keyboard). The labels are available in blue letters on clear labels (for beige and
light colored keyboards) and white letters on clear
labels (for dark colored keyboards).
This label set supports the
Spanish language in the following countries: Argentina, Bolivia (Spanish), Chile,
Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican
Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru
The label set also supports Quechua in: Bolivia, Ecuador,
and Peru. The
label set also supports K'iche (Guatemala). This language is supported in
Windows Vista, XP, ME, 98, and 95 using the Spanish Latin American keyboard
Mexican (Spanish) labels
are a very economical option for creating a bilingual Spanish
keyboard. The language labels use an easy peel-and-stick method to install.
They will not damage the original keyboard key. The
letters are printed on the underside of the labels so
that the lettering will not wear off. This affords you with many years of
language labels are designed to fit desktop and laptop computer keyboards.
Laptops with smaller than standard keys may not be compatible with the DataCal
size: 7/16" w X 9/16" H (11mm W X 14mm H)
Check your keyboard to ensure
that it is compatible. DataCal bilingual labels have the letters and
numbers on the right side of the label. These labels are compatible with
keyboards that have the letters printed on the left side of the key. The labels are not compatible
with keyboards that have the letter printing in the
middle or on the right side of the key top.
Durable labels. Labels are manufactured of
durable Lexan®. They won't tear, crack, discolor, or slip off even after
years of use.
Quality Printing. The printing is on the underside of
the label so the INK NEVER WEARS OFF OR SCRATCHES OFF.
Easy to Apply. The labels are EASY TO APPLY. The
labels are printed in the same sequence that they appear on the keyboard
regardless of the keyboard's original language. If necessary, labels can be
cut with scissors for special installations.
Quality Adhesive. The label adhesive firmly attaches
the label in place without damaging the keyboard key or the original key
Removable. If desired, Labels may be removed without
causing damage to the original key or the legend on the key.
Accurate Die-Cutting. Labels are printed with rounded
corners so they cover the keytop and will not pop off in use.
Complete Alphanumeric Set. The label sets include labels
to cover all of the alphanumeric keys on the keyboard. The sets do not
include the function keys, the control keys, or the numeric keypad.
Bilingual Keyboard. The clear labels do not interfere
with the original characters printed on the key.
Durable and Flexible. Labels are flexible enough to
allow you to feel the touch-typing bumps on the F and J keys.
Instructions for Typing in Spanish in
The Spanish keyboard layout
uses a system of deadkeys (highlighted in yellow below) to type certain accented
characters. To use the deadkey system, first type the deadkey; nothing will
appear on the screen. Next, type the key (generally a vowel) that you wish to
combine with the deadkey. You should then see the accented character that you
want on the screen. If you press a deadkey and then a press a key that does not
go with that accent (such as pressing an accent and the number "2"),
nothing happens; the accent deadkey must be correct to work. Depending upon the
language, deadkeys work with both unshifted and shifted keys.
The AltGr Key
Many languages include more characters than can
be typed on a standard computer keyboard. To solve this problem, additional
characters may be assigned to the right AltGr key (the right Alt key) and/or the
Shifted AltGr key. In Europe, the right Alt key is referred to as the AltGr key.
In the United States, it is merely the right Alt key. It is important to note
that the left Alt key cannot be used as the AltGr key.
Characters that require the AltGr key appear to the
left in the DataCal labels (see illustration to the left). On the number keys,
the AltGr characters are centered at the bottom of the label. Shifted AltGr
keys are centered at the top of the label. For alpha keys, the AltGr
characters are in the lower left corner of the label. Shifted AltGr characters
(if different from the lower case AltGr characters), are centered at the top of
The 102 Style Keyboard
This language uses the European style 102
keyboard layout. This keyboard layout features a key in the lower left corner of
the keyboard (next to the US English "Z" key) that is not found on
standard US 101 keyboards. If you are using a standard US 101 keyboard, you will
not be able to use this label. If you are using the US 101 style keyboard and
wish to type the characters on the 102 key, you will have to switch back to
English to be able to type these characters or use the Alt key input method.
To use the Alt key input method, hold down the
Alt key on the keyboard and press the numbers indicated below for the desired
character on the numeric keypad (note that the system only works with the
numeric keypad; it does not work with the number row across the top of the
||Alt + 062
