Is there a way to switch the language in Canvas? My students laptops can't do the ALT codes and every word they write is underlined as being wrong because they are typing in Spanish.
Sara Chronister, depending on the browser your students are using, they can turn off the spell check feature native to the browser to remove the offending wavy red lines. For example, I'm using Firefox, and I can toggle off spell check by right-clicking on a word and turning off Check Spelling. As soon as I do that, the wavy lines disappear.
Also, I'll refer you to these previous conversations about how to help students type in other languages by using different language keyboards:
Spanish Accent Marks?
Students Typing in French and Spanish
Typing Spanish Letters and Accents
and you'll find helpful tips in the conversation surrounding this archived feature idea:
Special language character panel/chart integration for Rich Content Editor
Last, consider joining the Español [ARCHIVE] group to exchange tips and tricks with Spanish-speaking users and Spanish teachers.
The underlines are a feature of the browser, not Canvas.
