This tutorial explains how to type accent marks, symbols, foreign letters, and other special characters.
Many times we have to use some diacritics or other special symbols/characters in our documents. At that time, either we need to search the web, use Character Map desktop application, or some third-party tool to use special symbols. Even Character Map application provides only few symbols. The whole process is time-consuming and includes multiple steps. In that case, you can use a free website, named TypeIt, which provides dozens of character set for different countries and Currencies.
