Top 4 Sites for Typing Accents (tildes) in foreign languages and loads of shortcuts!

This is a quick share of my favorite tools for tildes , accents and even symbols for currency.  

#1 The TYPEIT program works off and online and includes the IPA or International Phonetic Alphabet.  TypeIt will select, copy/paste the letter that you need.

 #2 StudySpanish.com is also very helpful and simple to use.
