It is also possible to use a addon to input special characters...It can be found on:
Please note that I don't believe it will work reliably on NVDA last versions due to WXPython changes...
I will investigate...

Hi Lino,

I'm not familiar with the Jaws special character entry, but there are several ways of entering alternate characters.

For learning Spanish, I would perhaps be inclined to install the Spanish language in Windows, including keyboard.  Then using WINDOWS+SPACEBAR you can change keyboard layout between languages.

Windows character map also works.  The symbol entry dialog in Word doesn't work overly well, but once you have entered symbols with it, to reuse them again is much easier.
