I use English and Serbian/Croatian about 50%-50% of the time while on internet. The problem is, Serbo-Croatian alphabet contains 30 characters. The extra characters are pretty much letters like C, S, D, an Z with accents. So, my question is what is the best way to accommodate this on Windows 7 and normal keyboard?
The perfect solution would be the way iPhone handles this. It's really brilliant. You just hold a character for a few seconds and options to choose a accented character pops up. What I am talking about is presented nicely in this article: http://ipod.about.com/od/iphonehowtos/qt/Iphone-Tip-Insert-Accents-On-Iphone.htm
At the moment, I open up Character Map and find a character I need and do copy-paste. I know there are shortcuts to get these characters to display, but they are not really user friendly as they are not easy to remember. For example: Č would be U+010C
If solution requires a running a small app in the background that is also acceptable, as long as it it's very light on resources.
Hopefully I was clear, and I hope somebody has a solution for this. Thanks in advance.
