Many of us know how to type a few special characters on our Macs, but who among us can claim to know how to type all of them? Thanks to Ergonis’s release of PopChar X 5.2, typing special characters is now a bit easier. New in this edition of PopChar is a font size slider, which makes it easier to adjust the window’s display — whether you’d prefer to see more characters at once, or finer detail for fewer characters. Even better, PopChar X 5.2 includes built-in hints for more than 70 fonts, so the slider is automatically adjusted for optimal display whenever possible. The new version also improves background memory usage, and resolves issues with Sigil, FocusWriter, TeXworks, and FileMaker Pro. (€29.99 new, free update, 2.3 MB)

Then you can press a letter corresponding with an item's name to select it; press Return to open it, Command-Q to quit the selected application, or Escape to exit keyboard access mode. You can also use the arrow keys, Tab key, and other keyboard navigation keys to toggle between the Dock items.

I forgot to mention that Apple have always produced machines and software that supported and respected « non-English persons ». I have used them all. And PopChar is also such a product…
