Frequently asked questions:
Q: What is the ^ or “hat” over the ô called?
A: This is called a circumflex and placed over a vowel in some languages to indicate contraction, length, or a particular quality. In my case it changes the “o” to a harder “or” sound.
Q: How do I type the ô character on a PC (Windows)?
A: Using the number pad (on an extended keypad); press to turn on the [Num Lock]. Next, holding the [Alt] key press the  keys on the number pad and finally let go of the [Alt] key.
Tip: some laptops have a Function [Fn] option to enable a number pad on a short keyboard.
Q: How do I type the ô character on an Apple Mac (OSX)?
A: Press the [Alt][i] keys together and then the [o] key.
