    For me some Alt codes still work, while typing others seems to act like a 'hot key', going back one page in a browser for instance (odd). The ones for and do that!

    For and you can add the Unites States-International (QWERTY) keyboard. Switch to that when you want to create characters with accents.
    To use, press one of the five punctuation keys ` ~ ^ ' " , then the letter to be modified...

    Type " followed by a for and " followed by o for . There's no way to produce though. Fortunately that particular alt-code does still work: (left) Alt+0229 still produces for me on a fully up to date Windows 10 version 1607.

    PS: if you have a UK keyboard (ENG UK) and switch to the ENG INTL one then the positions of @ and " are swapped. You'll need to remember to type @ when you want the " key.

    Thanks I had a long look at it but got into a real cul de sac when I also tried to use Dragon Speech 13 which I use a lot, not sure who was the more confused ! I've got round it temporarily using Lexibar.

    One way might be to buy the Swedish version of Dragon....?
