    On my father's iMac for some reason in any app when you try to type something in it only types in special characters and I'm not sure how to fix it, I'm also not sure how it even got in that mode in the first place. Any help?

    Try going to system preferences, then international, and check if your languages and all the information in the input menu is correct. Maybe he has a different input or character palette selected.
