keyboard shortcuts

Is there a way to type the accented letters from the keyboard, without having to shift to the mouse?

There are many ways and not all apply to every hardware or software you may have. What I use is a firefox plugin called https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/abctajpu/ checked the "Español" box and I add this line to the user defined macros, n=ñ|N=Ñ|a=á|e=é|i=í|o=ó|A=Á|E=É|I=Í|O=Ó|U=Ú|u=ú|v=ü|V=Ü| , so if I type "n" and hit the insert key it automatically becomes "ñ".
