Linux, Mac OS, and Android all supply built-in keyboards for typing accented letters. Windows computers and iPhones require additional software to support accented characters.
In Android you can use the Google Keyboard, which has a setting for Esperanto and is usually already installed on the phone. There is also an Esperanto Language Pack for the popular ...
There are at least three methods that I know of (I am using XUbuntu 15.10):
You can add an Esperanto keyboard layout. That is done differently for different graphical environments, assuming a graphical environment. The effect is that you can now switch to the new layout and type in Esperanto. It is QWERTY but some of the English letters have been replaced ...
Linux Mint (Cinnamon) has an option for this under the System Settings menu:
System Settings -> Hardware -> Keyboard -> Keyboard layout -> Options -> Adding Esperanto supersigned letters.
Then click the button by "To the corresponding key in a Qwerty layout".
You can now use AltGr C to type ĉ and AltGr Shift C to type Ĉ and so on.
Be aware: with enabled "...
En Ubuntu la eblecon 'Adding Esperanto circumflexes (supersigno)' malaperis ekde Ubuntu 14, sed eblas instali 'gnome-tweak-tool' kaj rehavi ĝin, same kiel en Linux Mint (Cinnamon):
1) Tajpu en terminalo (Ctrl-Alt-T):
sudo apt install gnome-tweak-tool
2) Elektu 'Typing' (tajpado, la 2a vico plej supre) kaj
3) Ŝanĝu 'Adding Esperanto ...
I use Windows 10 and I customised the US international keyboard to type the Esperanto characters, and I don't have the hassle of swiching it on and of like some other programs.
I used a software program called "Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator 1.4", you can download this from the Microsoft website and it's quite easy to use, (and free), just follow the ...
Krom “ĉe” kaj la pli oficiala (sed persone neniam aŭdita) po-signo, ReVo ankaŭ mencias la neformalan vorton “heliko”.
Se vi uzas Gnome (ekzemple per Fedora) vi povas uzi la x-sistemon sen instali ion ajn se vi ŝaltas ĝin per la agordoj. La x-sistemo permesas ekzemple tajpi “ehxosxangxocxiujxauxde” por ke aperu “eĥoŝanĝoĉiuĵaŭde”.
Puŝu la vindozan klavon por malfermi la serĉilon kaj serĉu “lingvo”.
Elektu “lando kaj lingvo”
Klaku la butonon “+” por aldoni plian enigmetodon....
I like to use WinCompose, which adds Compose key functionality to Windows. This means by pressing the set compose key (e.g. right Windows key), followed by more or less intuitive keystrokes you enter various Unicode symbols, e.g.:
^, h for ĥ (and analogously for ĉ, Ĝ, ĵ, Ŝ)
U, U for Ŭ
u, u for ŭ
', i for í
,, C for Ç
<, < for «
,, , for „
', ' for ”
For any small touchscreens (Android and iOS) (e.g. smartphones), I prefer to use Messagease. It's a completely different way to enter characters, rather than a special Esperanto keyboard. The motivation to use it is because the normal QUERTY layout is designed for typewriters. On the smartphones touchscreen, the characters of the QUERTY layout are generally ...
In addition to the ones already mentioned for Windows, there is yet another called Ek: http://www.esperanto.mv.ru/Ek/
Despite the program needing an update (and the website), I have used it successfully in both Windows 7 and Windows 10. In fact, it's the only one I've ever used.
I use Firefox and have had no issues, however I can't say whether it works ...
Unless I missed it, I don't think anyone has mentioned XK yet, which makes sense because I don't think it's very popular. Still, it's the one I use. It's pretty simple, uses the X-system, and it forms ŭ by v+x rather than u+x, because there are cases (in some languages, like French, and actually English as well) where the combination u+x is used naturally.
You can also use the Compose key (how to activate that depends on your system). To quote my Windows answer:

Ne estas multaj programoj por kontroli la facilecon de iu teksto. Ne ĉiuj konsentas pri tio kio estas facila. Tamen homoj konsentas ke oftaj vortoj estas pli facile kompreneblaj ol maloftaj vortoj. Por kontroli tion, estas la programo kiu nomiĝas Facililo. La retejo indikos al vi se vorto de via teksto ne apartenas al la vortolisto de Kontakto. (Kontakto ...
If you want to type fast and in a lot of languages, and because of that you don't have a good relationship with autocomplete, I can also recommend MessagEase. This is not a Qwerty-based layout, but a completely new one with only 9 keys which enables you to get to common speeds of around 30 WPM with the fastest of the world typing around 85 WPM on their ...
I have a German keyboard with deadkeys (no personal configurations). Using the ^ key, I can produce the following ĉapelitaj literoj: âĉêĝĥîĵôŝûŵŷẑ.
The breve is quite hidden, I have to press AltGr Shift # to get it. I can produce the following letters with breve: ăĕğĭŏŭ.
The deadkeys feature can also be used on the US international keyboard layout
I use TypeIt. I have had no problem with it whether on Windows 7 or Windows 10. Since a lot of Esperanto speakers like learning languages, it is also a plus that this keyboard is also useful to type a lot of languages and even IPA.
Mi tajpas ĉapelojn per TypeIt kaj mi havis nenian problemon. Ĝi bone ...
.epo could work, and there is precedent with other language-specific TLDs such as .cat (for the Catalan language). It was backed by a non-profit promoting the use of the language, so in theory something like the UEA could suggest and back a .epo TLD.... funds permitting of course.
Another option for Windows is EK (Esperanta Klavaro); the newest OS the page says it works on is Vista, but the program may still work on newer operating systems even if the site hasn't been updated.
For Android I use AnySoftKeyboard, it supports Esperanto characters by default (by long-pressing c, g, etc), and you can also install an Esperanto add-on, to ...
For Windows computer, I have used the Esperanto keyboard available here for download since Windows 7 (worked as well with Windows 8, 8.1, and 10, and it was designed for XP and Vista!). Switching keyboards between English and Esperanto using the Windows key + SPACE is quick.
This is the layout of the keyboard; in my opinion, it didn't take long to get used ...
Are you perhaps thinking of the Tekstaro? I think it would sort of do what you want except that it has a fairly limited selection of books so it’s more useful just to check language usage rather than find a particular title.
An option not mentioned yet in other answers: you can use the x-system as an input method using Ibus with the m17n Esperanto input methods. In Ubuntu this means you need to have ibus, ibus-m17n and m17n-contrib installed.
"Facililo" shows in green the most frequently used words in the list. It shows in blue the other words in the list. It shows in red the words that are not in the list.
La vortolisto estis kreita de Anna Löwenstein por la kunlaborantoj al la revuo Kontakto, kiuj skribas en facilan Esperanton por komencantoj. Ĝi havas 1000 vortojn. (This paragraph copied from ...
This question inspired me to created a very simple HTML program that will do this easily. You write the text with the x-system and then the program adds the hats. I hope that others will help improve the program.
It is free and open source. You don't need to install anything. Just download the file and open it as you would any webpage. https://github.com/...
