> It's Not on the Keyboard: Typing Special Characters and Foreign
> Languages in Word
> By Anna Dresner

> Accents, the copyright symbol, the yen sign, diacritical marks,
> alphabets such as Cyrillic-if you use a screen reader or braille display
> and need to type characters that aren't on the standard keyboard, this
> booklet will help!
> This book covers the two scenarios in which you might want to type such
> characters: One, if you need to type things like the copyright symbol,
> the yen sign, or an e with an acute accent but are working primarily in
> English; and two, if you want to type in a language that uses many
> symbols that aren't on the standard keyboard or are in a completely
> different alphabet, and you want to have them all readily available on
> the keyboard. Author Anna Dresner also covers how to work in a foreign
> language, and offers helpful tips such as controlling the AutoCorrect
> feature and making shortcut keys for symbols.
