Diereses prevent diphthongs; support diacritics awareness

--

Hi. My name is Daniel.

I'm mostly active on Ask Different, where I'm now a moderator◆, but I sometimes visit some other Stack Exchange sites (more to read than anything else).

I first got into computers in 1982, and learned to program on an Apple //+. Switched to Mac in 2003. I'm not a computer pro; it's just a hobby. I hope any of my questions or answers are helpful.

comment Is it possible to hack facetime call?
This blanket statement by itself really adds very little to the question.

comment How can I **EASILY** install this Mac OS X on a bunch of Macs without downloading the whole thing every time?
Is your question about downloading the installer as your title implies, about the setup/first login process, as the body of your question implies, or both? Are the machines the same hardware? Are you doing a clean install or trying to preserve existing data?

comment How do I log into my child's OS X account (under parental control) without knowing the password?
What do you want to accomplish by logging into her account? With an administrator account you can access all the files in her account without knowing or changing her password. You can also reset her password to a value you know, but then her password would be changed.

comment What is the best phonetic app for the iPad?
"Better" or "best" will be different for everybody. We can't tell you what application to use only based on the criteria "better than x" or "the best." Please ask again with specific requirements for the app (detailed feature set, where you want it to be strong, etc).

comment Is it possible to use a third-party unauthorized charger with an iPad running iOS 7
This is not always true. Software changes can change how fussy the device is about getting precisely the right wattage. Apple also performs other checks sometimes.

comment What features in iOS 7 make a difference?
Well, it's not opinion-based — it's factual whether features are documented or not. I'm not saying the question doesn't have problems, but it isn't "what are the coolest features of iOS 7"; the problem is that a question asking for "some" doesn't have a single right answer.

comment terminal command say produces error
Well, if the sound outputs as desired then what problem is there besides the undesired error message? So if it makes the error message go away, the problem is solved, unless we discover more side effects.

comment How to safely charge your apple device at a charging station?
This post on another SE site suggests that this won't work because Apple polls the data pins to determine whether the charger is 'approved'.

comment Allow access to selected web sites only
Do you have a set list of sites you want the computers to be able to access or does this solution need to determine which sites are "like study island or Plato" (neither of which, I must confess, I've ever heard of)?

comment How does one type an “É” (capital e acute) in the French keyboard layout in Mac OS X?
@greg0ire That is indeed an obnoxious set of keystrokes, but it's a function of the keyboard layout, not the OS in general. It's 3 keystrokes in my keyboard layout.

@TomGewecke but see academie-francaise.fr/la-langue-francaise/… for a rather authoritative counterargument.

comment How can I increase brightness on Mac without Mac keyboard
My experience is that this doesn't work in general; only with an Apple keyboard. When I plugged in a generic USB keyboard, F2 did not adjust brightness and there was no FN key to press in combination with F2.
