The ambitious but simple design and low price point of the Fraction keyboard, the latest Kickstarter project, is remarkable.

For those who are still struggling to do this in Word 2010-I have a work around-its not the best but it does work. The type your fraction normally, in the font you are using then superscript the numerator and subscript the denominator, once you have done that you can go to the font setting (highlight what you want change then right click on the font option) and then change the font spacing to condensed and type 1.5 in the box on the right, its not perfect way to do it but it does work. I suggest saving fractions you use on a regular basis so that you can copy past them.

If you have to type many fractional equations then the typing with shortcuts may be a tedious work. The alternate option is to use equation tools in Office documents. When you are in Office documents, navigate to “Insert > Equation” menu. Click on the “Fraction” drop-down and choose the type of fractional equation you want to type. You can choose from different options like Stacked Fraction, Skewed Fraction, Linear Fraction, Small Fraction and Differential Fraction. Start typing your fractional equation inside the box.

Per Janet’s excellent advice, if you use the Character Map often, you would want to make it easier to access by putting a shortcut to it on your desktop or Quick Launch toolbar. In XP, go to Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, and right-click on the Character Map. Choose “Send To” and choose “Desktop”. Then you can have your Character Map open and easy to bounce back and forth with your document. I like the Character Map too and people always ask how I put those symbols in my emails or documents. ♫ ♪ ♦ ♥ ♣ ♠ ☼ â…ž ₤

wordfaqs.ssbarnhill.com)If you want these fractions to behave the way �, �, and � do, however, you will need to create AutoCorrect entries from them (see �Exploiting AutoCorrect� for instructions on creating AutoCorrect entries). The easiest way to do this, of course, is to create AutoCorrect entries to replace 1/3, 2/3, etc., with the equivalent font characters. That is what most users will do. But users sometimes type dates in M/d or d/M format and don�t want the date for January 2 (or February 1) turned into �. They therefore disable the AutoFormat As You Type feature to �Replace fractions (1/2) with fraction character (�).� If you are one of those users, then choose different trigger text for your AutoCorrect entries. You could, for example, use 1;3 instead of 1/3. Once you have set up AutoCorrect entries for all six of these extra fractions, you�ll be all set to type recipes. (Source:
