Type It - Type Accents On Any Keyboard

Type It is a free online program for typing accent marks and other special characters that are often required for languages other than English. Type It supports twenty-one languages and currency symbols. You can insert accents and characters by selecting them from the menu provided by Type It or by using their suggested keyboard shortcuts.

Applications for Education
Type It is not a full-fledged word processor rather it simply provides a way to write text that you then copy into a document. Therefore, its probably best suited to use for correctly typing a person's name or typing short phrases that you will paste into another document. Type It could be used to correctly type parents' names for letters home.
