  • You can type the English value of the punctuation keys by holding down the Right-Alt or Option key. The Semicolon ; is typed Right-Alt+Semicolon (Windows) Option+Semicolon (Mac). The punctuation on the number keys (such as @ # $...) is accessed with the Right-Alt or Option key.
  • Opening and closing quotes. For Mac users, Right-Alt is either of the Option Keys.
