ok forget the acute accent example. In some brazilian keyboards
there's a acute accent dead key and in other model thie acute accent
and apostroph key are shared, the way I described. Only two models of
keyboard exist and are commonly used in brazil, the one that have its
own acute accent dead key and the one that shares the apostroph key
with the acute accent, in the way I have just described before.
But the thing is that every accent will behave this way. For example
the tild one, which have a not shared key as its dead key in the two
models will behave the same way:
Version 2.5:
pressing tild and a will tell tild a and pass first the tild character
to the application, then the a character.
Revision trunc 767 will talk the sound of the a~ (a tild accented), but
will pass the tild symbol to the aplication and then the a character,
instead of passing the tild accented a character.
Other accents will behave the same way here.

Hello,
I have never came across such keyboard model so maybe I am absolutelly
wrong. Are you brazilians used to use this key to type apostrof
regularly? Is it really an apostrof (ascii code 39)? Might it be some
other symbol? for example for me it prints something which can't be
understood even by jaws. it's code is reported as 180. Is that only dead
key you have?
Is there anyone out there who can reproduce this as well?

Thanks

Peter
