A Revolution in Education
Can your language teachers switch their keyboards and type in the targeted language?
I teach German and often use the ALT+4 letter code for German letters when using my keyboard. For the SmartBoard itself, I have Notebook 11 set up to recognize both English and German. I forgot how I did that (sorry), but it will convert my handwriting with German characters to text.
Thank you very much for answering my question. When I get back to work on Wednesday, I know what you did...it's under language in Notebook 11. I will try it in English and Spanish! :)
I wrote a little program to fix that problem for our teachers. See my post on the SMART Exchange product forum
Thank you for your feedback... I will definitely check out your link! :)
Let me know if it works!
Just downloaded the Notebook 11 update and I too am surprised to see that I can't make accent marks anymore! (I'm a Spanish teacher). The fixes suggested don't seem to work for me, any other solution would be welcome.
For the time being, the only consistent workaround to create accented characters in SMART Notebook 11 is to use the 'ALT+XXXX' hotkeys as suggested by Julie. However, SMART is aware of this issue and it will be addressed in the Service Pack being released later this Fall.
Have you tried my program mentioned above? Teachers at my school have had good result with it.
