Anglo-Saxon Minuscule: Transcription

In order to type out your transcription, you will need to know the following codes:

  1. Locate the bank of keys with numbers on the right hand side of the keyboard;
  2. Make sure the NUM[BER] LOCK is on - key usually at the top left of this bank. A green light will come on;

  3. To produce non-standard symbols, hold down the ALT key and type the relevant numerical code on the numbers in this bank of keys (not the ones at the top of the keyboard):

    • for , ALT + 0230;
    • for , ALT + 0240;
    • for , ALT + 0254;
    • for , ALT + 0198;
    • for , ALT + 0208;
    • for , ALT + 0222.

These codes work in Word as well.
