Way to type with umlauts quickly?
Any way to download something that allows me to use umlauts without clicking the buttons? I want to make it a habit to use them but it's just too annoying
my computer allows me to switch to a german keyboard, and umlauts are on the keys like + and ] and [ so it's easier to click them ^^ (and you press shift or control or whatever to get those characters.) but it really depends on your computer! good luck on your language learning journey :-)
On my iMac, if I hold down the "a" key, a little window opens giving me eight choices. If while still holding down that "a", I hit the "4" on the top row, my machine gives me an ä - with an umlaut. ö (8 choices) and ü (5 choices) require hitting the 2. Hold down the s (3 choices) and hit 1 and - an ß! Try it on your machine - it might work. It works on my husband's laptop, too. This also gives me all the extras I need for French and Spanish. ç, anyone? ñ?
