    1) The "Edit menu --> Insert Symbol" option in SALT allows you to set up a list of characters which can be inserted into the editor using minimal keystrokes. By default, the list contains the non-standard keyboard characters used for Spanish and French but this list can be edited to suit your needs.

    2) Windows® OS methods of accessing the diacritic characters

    Using the standard Windows keyboard. This is an easy method but may or may not work for you, depending on your operating system and/or keyboard.

    Hold down the RIGHT ALT key and type:
    ' (single quote)
    then type: a, A, e, E, i, I, o, O, u, or U
    to get: á, Á, é, É, í, Í, ó, Ó, ú, or Ú

    ` (back quote)
    then type: a, A, e, E, i, I, o, O, u, or U
    to get: à, À, è, È, ì, Ì, ò, Ò, ù, or Ù

    : (colon)
    then type: a, A, e, E, i, I, o, O, u, U, y or Y
    to get: ä, Ä, ë, Ë, ï, Ï, ö, Ö, ü, Ü, ÿ, or Ÿ

    ^ (caret)
    then type: a, A, e, E, i, I, o, O, u, or U
    to get: â, Â, ê, Ê, î, Î, ô, Ô, û, or Û

    ~ (tilde)
    then type: a, A, n, N, o, or O
    to get: ã, Ã, ñ, Ñ, õ, or Õ

    , (comma)
    then type: c or C
    to get: ç or Ç

    3) 3rd party software. There are several free software applications which may be downloaded to provide easy access to the Spanish character set, e.g., www.onehourprogramming.com/spanish-accents/

    4) Use other word processor. You may prefer to type the entire transcript in Microsoft Word or some other word processor where Spanish symbols are available. Then, you can save the transcript as a text file with the extension .SLT. Or you can cut/copy and paste the text from Microsoft Word into the SALT transcript window.
