How to type (spanish) accents if my keyboard does not have a number pad (i.e. á)?

Kuphostiwe

I'm using Windows 10 in a Microsoft Surface. I don't have a number pad on the side, nor embedded on my keyboard.

I write regularly in Spanish and need to use Spanish characters.

Is there a way to do this? An add-on that would do it (I couldn't find any)?

I do have the Spanish dictionary installed. This catches orthographic mistakes, but does not allow me to type accents. For instance, the word "mas" with and without accent on the letter "a" has two different meanings. The dictionary cannot capture this grammatical nuances.

Please go to the language tools URL and install the language, if you want a dictionary it is there also. Switch between them as per the 1st URL

Just as you can run more than one language on Windows and switch between them. But you do have to download them 1st.

Doesn't let me.

I'm using the latest Firefox version (60.0.2) I can download from the Website. But, the language pack asks for at least version 61.

Thank you. I do appreciate your help.

I did update Firefox and installed the language pack. Then added the string "ar" to "intl.locale.request" in the "about:config" site.

But, for example, when I type "Ctrl + ' + a" I don't get an accent on the letter "a". Nor if I type "alt + 164".

Is it there a way I can easily write with accents in Firefox?
