Website of the Week: TypeIt

TypeIt: Type accent marks, diacritics and other characters online (Gr. 3-12) is a free online tool for adding accent marks and other special characters found in the alphabets of other countries and cultures. There are currently 22 character sets available including Czech, Danish, Esperanto, Russian and Welsh. This web-based tool has been tested for compatibility with Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari and Chrome. Basic font formatting tools are also provided. When finished, copy-&-paste the text into the desired text program to be then saved, printed, emailed, etc.


  • If you have or are considering a pen-pal program with students from other countries, this could be a handy tool for students to use to practice writing in their pen-pal’s language.
  • Use to compare how the same phrase is written across multiple languages and cultures.
