If you don’t already know how to type accented and special characters (covered in), then you should find out now. Make sure you can type all of these characters: á é í ó ú ü ñ ¿ ¡
On most mobile devices, press and hold a letter on the touchscreen keyboard and you get a popup showing all the possible accents. On a Mac computer or most mobile devices, hold down the letter and select an accent from the pop-up. On a PC, hold down the Alt key and type on the numeric keypad a number code. A further option for both PCs and Macs is to set your computer to use a Spanish keyboard layout; on a PC, go to ‘Start’ and open the ‘Control Panel’, then click on ‘Date, Time, Language, and Regional Options’ (‘Region and Language’ then ‘Keyboards and languages’ in Windows 7).
