Holdkey – Windows program that makes it easy to type accented characters and some special symbols

Holdkey – Windows program that makes it easy to type accented characters and some special symbols | Translator Tools | Scoop.it

Holdkey is a Windows program that makes it easy to type characters with accents.
No more hassle with alt codes or other time consuming methods to create characters like : é à ø ü € ß ñ ï ç ö ę ğ and many many more.

Stanislav Okhvat's insight:

Holdkey is a small program that works in the background and allows you to insert accented letters (a through z) and other special symbols like the Euro or Pound sign. To insert such characters, simply press and hold a key for a letter, then select one of the options from a special bar that opens above the letter. For example, for lower-case "a", the options are äàáæåâãǎαą. The program comes in two versions: professional (7.50€ for 3 licenses) or free (with minor restrictions). Learn more at http://www.holdkey.eu/ . Thanks to Michael Beijer for suggesting this.

As I wrote, it is in beta and not even published yet, there is still quite some tweaking and polishing to do. Give me a moment to write a minimal documentation and I'll provide you with a test version.

Thanks, Raphaël, I'll look forward to that.

Hi Stanislav - a test version is available, I'll send you the link by DM via Twitter. Please be indulgent, I'm only a hobby scripter and there is still a lot to be enhanced to make the application more user friendly. Any feedback is of course highly welcome!
