Abstract
(EN)
A method and apparatus for entering an alphanumeric character with an accent or extension into an electronic device. A base character is entered into the device using a keypad (310), and the base character is then displayed on the device display (330). Next, a table (200) that includes a plurality of accents or extensions (210) is displayed for the user on the device display (330). The user then selects an accent or extension (210) from the table (200) that the user wishes to associate with the base character. After the selection of the accent or extension from the table (200) by the user, the base character is replaced on the device display (330) with a composite character that consists of the base character and the accent or extension (210) selected by the user from the table (200).

L'invention se rapporte à un procédé et à un appareil permettant d'entrer un caractère alphanumérique avec accent ou signe distinctif dans un dispositif électronique. On entre un caractère de base dans le dispositif électronique au moyen d'un clavier (310), et le caractère s'affiche sur l'afficheur (330) du dispositif. Une table (200) contenant une pluralité d'accents ou de signes distinctifs (210) est alors affichée pour l'utilisateur sur l'afficheur (330) du dispositif. L'utilisateur sélectionne dans la table (200) un accent ou un signe distinctif (210) qu'il souhaite associer au caractère de base. Une fois que l'utilisateur a choisi un accent ou un signe distinctif dans la table (200), le caractère de base est remplacé sur l'afficheur (330) par un caractère composite qui est constitué du caractère de base et de l'accent ou du signe distinctif (210) sélectionné par l'utilisateur dans la table (200).
