Ok Google in Spanish

Windows Users general information

You have two basic options: type in cryptic codes or set up your keyboard differently. Typing in cryptic codes is cumbersome and frustrating. Usually, setting up your keyboard is the best way to go.

Setting up your keyboard actually means re-configuring your system so that it is easy to use your keyboard to create accented characters. “Re-configuring your system” may sound ominous, but it is really quite simple.

Searching and asking questions

Asking Google about anything

  • “How old is [name]?”
  • “Where was [name] born?’
  • “Who invented [anything you want to find]?”
  • “How tall is [name of person or building]?”
  • “What country is [anything you want to find] in?”

Google can obviously turn to the internet for answers, but it can also search your Gmail inbox and some other places. For example, when we asked “Where’s my hotel?” it looked in Gmail and found an upcoming reservation.


  • “How is [say the name of the team] doing?”

Mac Users

To get accents on the Mac, hold down the Option key, and while holding it down, type the letter e; then release those keys and type the letter that you want the accent to appear on:

  • á = Opt + e, then a
  • é = Opt + e, then e
  • í = Opt + e, then i
  • ó = Opt + e, then o
  • ú = Opt + e, then u

For the ñ, hold down the Option key while you type the n; release and type n again.

  • ñ = Opt + n, then n

To place the diaeresis over the u, hold down the Option key while pressing the u key; release and type u again.

  • ü = Opt + u, then u

The inverted punctuation marks are achieved as follows:

  • ¡ = Opt + 1
  • ¿ Opt + shift + ?
