There are many specialized fonts that allow you to insert diacritics or stress marks (IPA fonts, for example). However, there are also a number of Unicode fonts that generally come with Windows that also provide this option (Times New Roman, Arial, Lucinda Sans)
To enter one of the non-spacing accents in Microsoft Word:
- Choose "Insert," then "Symbol" from the menu
- Under the "Font" drop-down menu, choose one of the Unicode fonts listed above
- Under the "Subset" drop-down menu, choose "Combining Diacritical Marks"
- Select the desired symbol and click "Insert"
To save time, create a shortcut key for diacritics you use frequently (by clicking the "shortcut key" button and assigning a shortcut key). (
