Instructions for Typing in Spanish inWindows
The Spanish keyboard layoutuses a system of deadkeys (highlighted in yellow below) to type certain accentedcharacters. To use the deadkey system, first type the deadkey; nothing willappear on the screen. Next, type the key (generally a vowel) that you wish tocombine with the deadkey. You should then see the accented character that youwant on the screen. If you press a deadkey and then a press a key that does notgo with that accent (such as pressing an accent and the number "2"),nothing happens; the accent deadkey must be correct to work. Depending upon thelanguage, deadkeys work with both unshifted and shifted keys.
The AltGr Key
Many languages include more characters than canbe typed on a standard computer keyboard. To solve this problem, additionalcharacters may be assigned to the right AltGr key (the right Alt key) and/or theShifted 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 notethat the left Alt key cannot be used as the AltGr key.
Characters that require the AltGr key appear to theleft 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 AltGrkeys are centered at the top of the label. For alpha keys, the AltGrcharacters 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 ofthe label.
The 102 Style Keyboard
This language uses the European style 102keyboard layout. This keyboard layout features a key in the lower left corner ofthe keyboard (next to the US English "Z" key) that is not found onstandard US 101 keyboards. If you are using a standard US 101 keyboard, you willnot be able to use this label. If you are using the US 101 style keyboard andwish to type the characters on the 102 key, you will have to switch back toEnglish to be able to type these characters or use the Alt key input method.
To use the Alt key input method, hold down theAlt key on the keyboard and press the numbers indicated below for the desiredcharacter on the numeric keypad (note that the system only works with thenumeric keypad; it does not work with the number row across the top of thekeyboard).
