How do you type accented letters with a US keyboard? Has anyone found an easy way to type accented letters in iTalki with a US keyboard? I know the "ALT+" keystrokes, but those don't seem to work here, and all the virtual keyboard provides is the "ñ". Does anyone have an easy way of typing accented As, Es, etc?

Hola, Ben, esta es la explicación que he dado anteriormente a algunos amigos para conseguir esto. Es la mejor manera que conozco: ★ Tildes en las vocales y letra Ñ ____________ 1. Asegúrate de que tu teclado esté en Inglés Internacional. Esto lo puedes comprobar en Panel de Control → Configuración regional y aquí buscas el teclado y su configuración. 2. Cuando lo tengas así, lo único que tienes que hacer es presionar la tecla ALT Derecha (con la Izquierda no funciona) y luego la tecla "n" y te saldra "ñ". De igual manera para las tildes de las vocales (a, e, i, o, u), ALT Derecha + la vocal. Y para las mayúsculas ALT Derecha + SHIFT + la "N" o vocales. Por favor, dinos si te sirve de ayuda, Ben. Recibe un afectuoso saludo.

Alt + 160 = á Alt + 130= é Alt + 161 = í Alt + 162 = ó Alt + 163 = ú Alt + 164 = ñ and ALT + ´ + vocal

hey! just an offtopic comment, I never imagined how difficult is finding a differente language keyboard. Im in Taiwan and all the keyboars you can find here has the Taiwanese input system which is widely different from the mainland china system. Also I went to some brands official stores like HTC or Asus to ask them if I can order a spanish keyboard, they say thats not possible :(
