how to write the portuguese accents in computer...

Olá! Sou o Tadas.

I'm going to show an useful thing for everyone, so i'll write in English.
It is about accents when writting in Portugu

There are 4 different accents: wave (~), right (´), left (`) and reversed tick (^).

For a better explanation, i suggest you to turn on "On screen keyboard".
If you are using Windows 7 OS or Vis
ta, just press "START" button
and in a search field write "keyboard"

"On screen keayboard" will appear on top of a list.

If you are using Windows XP, then you
can find it in:
Start -> Programs -> Accessories -> accessibility ->
"On screen keyboard"

For Mac's:


It will be little different, but t
he main idea is the same:
to see which letter is dedicated for any keyboar
d's button in that language.

If you would change typing language, you can see, that letters changes too.
(Try change between English/Por
If you press "caps lock" or "shift", you can see,
whether capital letters or another symbols are activated (Like our interested - accent symbols)

I marked them in red and dedicated numbers.
The point to understand:
"SHIFT" activates capital letters AND ` ^ accents only for capital letters.
"CAPS LOCK" activates ONLY CAPital letters. Accents ´ ~ stays same.

So if you want to get á, you need to press button "1" and then letter "a".
{That is the same for é, í, ó, ú, ý}
ã, you need to press button "2" ant letter "a".
{That is the same for õ}
à, first press "caps lock" (activate capital letters), AND THEN
"HOLD shift" (Activate accents ` ^ and DEactivate capital letters), nr. 1 and "a".
{That is the same for è, ì, ò, ù}
â, first press "caps lock", "HOLD shift", nr. 2 and "a".
{That is the same for ê, î, ô, û}

To get capital letters:
Á - "caps lock" (activate capital letters), nr. 1 and "A". [É, Í, Ó, Ú, Ý]
à - "caps lock" (activate capital letters), nr. 2 and "A". [Õ]
À - "HOLD shift", nr. 1 and "A". [È, Ì, Ò, Ù]
 - "HOLD shift", nr. 2 and "A". [Ê, Î, Ô, Û]

It's like a vice versa thing, but that's how it is.
Hope, it helped you.

P.S. I believe, same accent thing can be found for any language.
I don't know how it is done, but i'm sure, there is way.

P.S.S. if you would press right "ALT" button,
you can see, how symbols changes in each language.
