On of the complaints I hear from foreign language teachers from time to time is about typing accents and special characters. Our SWIFT page is one example where you can't type them. This website, Typeit, allows you to type special characters until your little heart is content and without keyboard combinations! Once you have said what you need to say in French or Spanish, you cut and paste your text into your Swift page, word doc, or what have you. Very cool!
Not only would this be useful for teachers and students doing their day to day homework, but it would also be handy for kids quoting a foreign author in a paper. Or, for writing to parents.
Thanks, yet again, to Free Tech 4 Teachers.
