Hi, I am new here and I would like to know where I can find the special charachter used in Esperanto. I have a Mac and use MacOS 10.4, I looked at all layouts for my keyboard, also the slavic languages, but I can't find all the Esperanto letters.

Also in Word I can't find these special letters, is there a possibility for a download or anything?

I use Linux, which allows me to load an Esperanto keymap, but I don't know how easy it is to do that on a Mac.

However, if you use FireFox, the extension abcTajpu will allow you to type the superscripted characters within FireFox (at least).

Thanks for your quick answer. I usually use Safari (the browser from Apple) but I'll try if it works with FireFox.

Maybe somebody else has a suggestion for Macs/Safari and also for the other applications like Word, Excel...

You can get access to the esperanto characters on your mac via the following

From the apple menu, go to system preferences -> International -> Input Menu

uncheck the U.S. the "U.S. Keyboard (roman)" and check the "U.S. Keyboard (unicode)"

From there you can easily access special characters.

if you hit option six, you get a ^ and then next letter you type will be under it. so you can make

ĉ ĝ ĵ etc...

option b gives the breve ˘ symbol which can be put over the u for the ŭ

Note, if you have several keyboard layouts active, there is a little menu that will appear next to the clock (upper right hand corner) that lets you switch among them. make sure the unicode option is selected. It will say U.S. extended or something like that.

Hope that helps ridulo.gif

@ awake:

thanks a lot!

It really works ridulo.gif

I tried the US extended layout, but I didn't try all these option + other keys. If you don't know, it's really a hidden feature.

Now I now how to write these letters.

Just a friendly reminder that this is an English language forum; you are welcome to post in Esperanto, but it should be accompanied by an English translation. Lernu has several Esperanto-only forums where you can feel free to post in Esperanto without a national language translation.

Thanks for the link.

I am just at the beginning of learning Esperanto but since I speak several other European languages, I can read (and understand rido.gif ) most things.
