How do I type foreign characters by using ALT+.... method?

2014-07-24, 16:42 PM

Hello,

 

How do I get foreign characters from the Character Map using the ALT+... method?  For example, the Character Map tells me that to get the small letter "a" with a tilde (ã), I should type "Keystroke: Alt+0227".  How do I actually type this and get this numeric code?

 

Any ideas?  On older computers, I could access a 10-key numeric set of keys.

 

Thanks,

 

 

Kelly
