Can't type Swedish characters :/ buttons are missing.


it still accepts the answer if the accents on the letters aren't there. but im assuming we'll need to use them eventually


You could add the international keyboard. Ah, then add the Swedish keyboard too or type ALT + 0228 for ä and ALT + 0229 for å

Windows also has a Character Map program that you can copy and paste from.

Scroll down past the no support for xp for step by step instructions to adding a keyboard and how to access the special accents on the international keyboard. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/306560


If you're on a Macintosh, "Alt + u" gives you ¨the two dots (i.e är) and "Alt + a" gives you å. If you are on windows, look up how to use special characters. It's a pain, but if it's what you have to do, then it's what you have to do.


Just to clarify, "ett" is specifically for "an" while "en" is specifically for "an"? Yes or no? Are there any other relevant distinction?

No, "en" and "ett" have no relation whatsoever to an/a. You basically have to learn when to use "en" and when to use "ett". If you're in doubt, go with "en". "En" is a lot more common than "ett".
