Re: Accents (acentos) in Microsoft Office Word 2007

Acute accents are available directly from UK keyboards (AltGr+vowel) but, interestingly, not from Spanish ones; Spanish keyboards do, however, have an Ñ key.

You don't actually need to assign keys to accent letters when typing in Spanish, French, etc., using Word. To type an accented letter, press Ctrl+accent followed by the letter you want accented. For example, to type á, press Ctrl ' followed by a. To type ñ, press Ctrl+Shift+~ (shift is needed since ~ is a shifted `), followed by the n. For è, press Ctrl+` followed by e, etc
