Input in a specific program such as Microsoft Word is very different than a general operating system feature. (Moreover, such advice may only apply to the Windows version of Word; it doesn't work in the Mac version. And who wants to open Word to type a foreign character?)

comment Distinguishing Sie (you) from sie (they) in conversational German
I asked the question because I've actually had this situation several times. When it happened in person, I felt it would be rude to point too much. And, of course, there are the times it happened in a telephone call (my biggest nemesis, in so many ways), where visual clues are obviously useless.
