My keyboard layout is "Turkish QWERTY PC" and the problem is that I cannot type the special symbols being typed by using +3 and +4 which are "#" and "$".

I opened the key viewer and typed +3. It then says that I typed "#" but that's wrong.

Is there any solution to fix this?

I am using a Macbook Pro running Mac OS X 10.6.8.

A brief look around and it seems as though an third party application like Ukelele should help you map keys correctly for your keyboard.


The most common cause for a key or two not working is that they have been set as triggers for speech recognition or text to speech. Double check system preferences/speech to make sure this is not the case with your machine.


Try using right-side +4.
