>> 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.
