Typing With Accents – Quick and Easy Guide

I just created this video to show you how to make typing accented letters quicker and easier in French. I used Screencast-o-Matic to record the screencast, then I imported that into Windows Movie Maker to create and edit the video. Easy!

Creating Shortcut Keys for French Accents

Here’s a tutorial I’ve given to various year groups over the last two years on how to make inserting accented letters quick and easy when typing in Word. Unfortunately when using OneNote, it doesn’t work. Still, I think it’s a useful skill to learn and help to encourage students to use the accents instead of just ignoring their existence! Alternatively you can change the proofing language to French. This will pick up most missing accents and spelling errors but not all.
