[bksvol-discuss] Re: Accent marks

MessageHi Kim,

The symbol you are looking for, though I have no idea how to make it, is a 
circumflex.  I took French in high school and college.  Naive is a French word, 
and the umlaut is not used in French.  This i needs a circumflex.  I looked in 
the list that comes up with Insert-4 in JAWS, and they have i acute, though I 
don't remember what that looks like in Braille.  The only reason that matters 
is that I learned French in Braille.

I have stayed out of this until now, because I couldn't remember what the 
symbol was called, but now I remembered.  I'm not very helpful, since I don't 
know how to make it, but that is what it is.

Sandi

  Hi, Cindy I think it's another word for that umlaut-like mark. I found the 
word on a site where it was talking about French accent marks (they do seem to 
have a lot of them). Regards, Kim.

    If your computer has a number pad, make sure numlock is turned on. Hold 
    down the alt key, and press the following numbers: 0237.
