AltKeys is a Relocatable Module (RM) for RISC OS, that allows special
characters and punctuation marks to be entered from a regular keyboard
in a simple and intuitive manner, in addition to the method already
provided by the operating system. Pressing the Alt-key briefly enters
compose mode after which two keys are pressed to create
the desired letter.
E.g. (Alt) (e) (/) produces é.
The following methods are currently supported:
Compose mode (combining two characters into one special character)
ASCII mode (typing the ASCII code whilst holding down Alt) 1
Character mode (entering a single character whilst holding down Alt) 1
This is a standard method provided by RISC OS.
