To get accents on the Mac, hold down the Option key, and while holding it down, type the letter e; then release those keys and type the letter that you want the accent to appear on:
- á = Opt + e, then a
- é = Opt + e, then e
- í = Opt + e, then i
- ó = Opt + e, then o
- ú = Opt + e, then u
For the ñ, hold down the Option key while you type the n; release and type n again.
- ñ = Opt + n, then n
To place the diaeresis over the u, hold down the Option key while pressing the u key; release and type u again.
- ü = Opt + u, then u
The inverted punctuation marks are achieved as follows:
- ¡ = Opt + 1
- ¿ Opt + shift + ?
