Easily type Spanish accents – free download

Teaching in Mexico has meant that sometimes I need to type in Spanish. With my Aussie laptop this can be annoying. In Windows 8 it is not too difficult to use the touchscreen keyboard but it is still annoying. Not everyone has a touchscreen either.

Using the marvelous AutoHotKey again and a little tinkering, now I can just press Ctrl+Shift+a to give me á, for example. You can download the file here from my server. It should work on most versions of Windows.


The file above is a program built from this super-simple script that I made:

#NoEnv ; Recommended for performance and compatibility with future AutoHotkey releases.
; #Warn ; Enable warnings to assist with detecting common errors.
SendMode Input ; Recommended for new scripts due to its superior speed and reliability.
SetWorkingDir %A_ScriptDir% ; Ensures a consistent starting directory.
; To use, do Ctrl+Shift+a, to do an 'a' with an accent
^+a::Send á
^+e::Send é
^+i::Send í
^+o::Send ó
^+u::Send ú
^+n::Send ñ
