I haven’t yet tried this with nVDA running,
but the quickest way for me has always been to turn
the numlock on, and type the alt-number combination,
then turn the numlock off again. This won’t work for
everyone. While I admit I can’t remember all the
important codes, most of the ones I use are accents
you’d find in french, and I do remember those. Windows
has a feature called Character Map, which you can use
to look up character codes, or paste the characters
directly into your document. I haven’t used it since
XP, but I just looked, and note that it is still here
in Windows 10. However, the interface seems to have
changed somewhat. Still, you can search for things if
you select the advanced view. Play around with it if
you like. You’ll probably have to use object
navigation in NVDA.
The good news is that once you know the code,
you don’t have to muck around with pasting anything.
Make a list of the ones you use often, rather as Gene
suggested, and before long you’ll remember them and
type them quickly and efficiently.
no such dialog. Do you still have JAWS on your
machine? You could create your own list using
Notepad and then cut and paste them into documents.
Or you can create these characters using the numpad,
but I've almost never done this. Since NVDA uses
the Numpad, I'm not sure if you can do this unless
you use the bypass command. Others may comment.
