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.

SendMode Input ; Recommended for new scripts due to its superior speed and reliability.
