Long Press is a jQuery plugin to ease the writing of accented or rare characters.I wrote this plugin because I wanted to be able to insert rare characters as easily as on Android or iOS. I learned pretty quickly after doing it that Moutain Lion already offers such a feature. This is called reinventing the wheel…
Focus a form field and hold key to access alternate characters. Try ‘a’, ‘e’, ‘u’, ‘i’, ‘o’ or ‘$’ for example.
Pick letter by:
- using mouse wheel;
- hovering over it with your mouse;
- using arrow keys.
