    Keyboard shortcuts for French accents

    Julianne Mangin Adventurer

      For those who are working on documents in French, here's a list of the codes for creating letters with accents on them.  For other languages, do a Google search on "alt codes for [whatever language]".

       

      In Windows, you type the code while the ALT key is depressed.  On a Mac, I believe you would use the OPTION key.

      Alt - 0192    À - a grave

      Alt - 0224    à - a grave

      Alt - 0194    Â - a circumflex

      Alt - 0226    â - a circumflex

      Alt - 0196    Ä - a umlaut

      Alt - 0228    ä - a umlaut

      Alt - 0200    È - e grave

      Alt - 0232    è - e grave

      Alt - 0201    É - e acute

      Alt - 0233    é - e acute

      Alt - 0202    Ê - e circumflex

      Alt - 0234    ê - e circumflex

      Alt - 0203    Ë - e umlaut

      Alt - 0235    ë - e umlaut

      Alt - 0206    Î - I circumflex

      Alt - 0238    î - i circumflex

      Alt - 0207    Ï - I umlaut

      Alt - 0239    ï - i umlaut

      Alt - 0212    Ô - O circumflex

      Alt - 0244    ô - o circumflex

      Alt - 0140    Œ

      Alt - 0156    œ

      Alt - 0217    Ù - U grave

       

      Let me know how this works for you.
