When assessing Presentational Writing in AAPPL, all Romanized alphabet languages (English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish), can use the on-screen special character palette to insert accents and symbols. Additionally, on Windows-based computers, combinations of the ALT key plus a numeric code can be used to type non-English characters (accented letters, diacritical marks, or punctuation symbols). The ALT codes can be used for the French, German, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish languages only. For Arabic, Chinese (Mandarin), Hindu, Japanese, Korean, Russian, and Thai languages, the language-specific keyboard must be set up. (Source:

When Windows later transitioned to Unicode, there was a desire to extend the Alt codes to allow entry of any Unicode code point. Some applications (RichEdit-based) like Word 2010, Wordpad, and PSPad will display the characters corresponding to many Alt codes larger than 255 when they have fonts available with the relevant glyphs. Other Windows applications, including Notepad, Chrome, Firefox, and Microsoft Edge interpret all numbers greater than 255 modulo 256. (Source: en.wikipedia.org)

Key

To use alt codes on Mac computers, use the Option key instead of the Alt key. Option codes for accented letters, symbols, and special characters work differently on Mac computers, as you press Option, the accent, then the letter. For example, to create an n with a tilde, the alt code is Option+n. To create the letter, press Option+n, then press n again because you want to place the tilde over the letter n.

This page lists Alt codes, shortcuts and HTML codes for special characters that you may not be able to type directly from your keyboard but you can access them using Alt codes, shortcuts or HTML codes instead. For example, a standard US keyboard will not show à, but you can type it by holding your ALT key then type 0224 or 133 on Windows. (Source: fontmeme.com)
