Hi Judy! This post was very helpful. You really know your way around a computer.Thanks for the way to make the copyright © and registered ® symbols with the Alt-number combination. How about trademark ?. I didn't think of that one when I posted all the ones I knew. I got ? from typing (TM) in Word.
I just went to the character map. I can read it, but I don't know if there is a way to select any of the characters while using a screen reader, so, for those who do use screen readers, it seems clumky.
Yes, Start -- Run -- charmap does bring up the character map. I just tried it. Debby At 10:07 PM 12/20/2009, Judy s. wrote
Hi all, The copyright symbol © is alt-0169 (alt key zero one six nine) The registered symbol ® is alt-0174 (alt key zero one seven four) Remember you must use the numeric keypad to type in the numbers, or this doesn't work.I don't know if a screen reader can interpret the following correctly so it is even usable if you're blind, but on a windows system you can reach a utility called the "Character Map" that is built into every Windows system. It lists every ascii letter and symbol and its keyboard equivalent in a table, and you can even copy the symbols from this table into any program on a Windows system.On a Windows 2000 and Windows XP systems you reach the Character Map by clicking the Start button, then clicking Programs, then clicking Accessories, and then clicking System Tools, then clicking Character Map. On a Vista system you reach the Character map by clicking the Start button, then clicking All Programs, clicking Accessories, clicking System Tools, and then clicking Character Map. On a Windows 7 system you reach the Character map by clicking the Start button and then in the search box, type Character Map, and then, in the list of results, click Character Map. Alternatively, I think on all windows system you can click on the start menu, chose the run option and in the run dialog box type: charmap.exe - but I'm not positive about this one.Also, in Microsoft Word, it is under the "tools" "autocorrect" menu where the option is set to turn use of a left parentheses followed by a letter c into a copyright symbol and a left parentheses followed by the letter r into the registered symbol. It is set to do this by default.Hope this helps. smile Judy s.

I know that with the settings I have set him both my neck and my PC it executes it encircled as opposed to having parenthesis on either side of the letter.To unsubscribe from this list send a blank Email to bksvol-discuss-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxxput the word 'unsubscribe' by itself in the subject line.
