Charles -
Once you have succeeded at changing over to the Portuguese  
(Brazilian) keyboard, then it is a matter of knowing how they type in  
Brazil on their keyboards. Each country, even when they speak the  
same language of another country, actually type differently from  
country to countrt...for example, the keyboard for Portuguese from  
Portugal is not the same design as the keyboard for Portuguese in  
Brazil...so be sure to choose the Portuguese keyboard for Brazil...

Once you have that keyboard, you have to find the symbols based on  
the Brazilian keyboard design...and here attached is more  
information...here is a picture of the Brazilian keyboard design,  
which is based on Dead Keys...it explains what a Dead Key is...a Dead  
Key is where you type one key and then a second key to get the accent  
over the symbol...

When I type in Danish for example, I have to know the typing  
techniques that they use in Denmark...it can get confusing!
