If you ever wished to easily type Czech characters (
ěščřžýáíéúů etc) on an Apple laptop with English keyboard – download this file and move
Then you can add one of three versions (UK, US and international) in
System Preferences > Keyboard > Input Sources > "+" > Czech > Czenglish [UK,US,IE]
and then choose it as your main keyboard in the Input menu.
All your UK (US) keys will work, but typing
alt-a will produce
alt-c will type
č, et cetera. Uppercase variants with a
shift key, of course.
There are two exceptions –
é is at
alt-j. Still close though.
And a few additional characters:
#(US pound) at
„(starting quotes) at
“(ending quotes) at
- ° (degrees sign) at
- × (multiply sign) at
- and a few others.
Please suggest if you wish to add more alternative characters in the future. Or download and use fantastic software Ukelele from SIL – it is very easy, and has little risk.
BTW alt-§ is a codename we have for oysters with a friend.
