Typing in Mandarin I've just started typing in Mandarin. How do I type the accent marks on the pinyin vowels? The ones that look like /, \, and V. I'm also using a virtual keyboard. Is there some program that might make it more convenient?

You don't really type Pinyin. You use Pinyin without tone marks as input system to type chinese characters. But if you really want to type Pinyin there are afew option: 1. If I want tone marks I simply type the characters into https://translate.google.com - and then copy & paste the Pinyin 2. Another way is the Firefox Extentension abcTajpu. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/addon/abctajpu/ 3. Another Windows tool in http://www.pinyinjoe.com , which you can install on your PC. I stick to https://translate.google.com though

There is a recent discussion about adding tone marks to Pinyin, where a number of recommendations have been made: http://www.italki.com/discussion/78020

You don't need to type the accent marks. For example, if you want to type "我”, just type "wo". You can use “搜狗拼音” on your computer. http://pinyin.sogou.com/ click "立即下载“
