ASCII Characters

Computer Tips, RESOURCES-TIPS

By: Deanna Lilly

ASCII characters are used for foreign words or when you need a symbol you cannot locate easily on your computer using the Insert Symbol option.

ASCII (/ˈæskiː/ ( listen) ASS-kee), abbreviated from American Standard Code for Information Interchange, is a character encoding standard for electronic communication. ASCII codes represent text in computers, telecommunications equipment, and other devices.

To create the ASCII character, Hold down the ALT key and use the numeric keypad (you must use the numeric keypad) to create the characters for your manuscripts.
