I want to spell "Operational Technology" in LaTeX. However whenever I write " followed bt O, it forms Ö. E.g., Öperational Technology.

Escaping the o or the " does not bring about the desired result.

  • Welcome to TeX.SE. Please tell us whether you employ the babel package and, if so, which language settings you use.

Assuming you're employing the babel package with the option ngerman, I suggest you also load the csquotes package with the option german=quotes. That way, you can write

\enquote{Operational Technology}

to get Gänsefüßchen-style typographic opening and closing quotation marks.

Alternatively, if you wanted to output "straight", i.e., vertical, opening and closing double-quote marks, you could input

"{}Operational Technology"

enter image description here

\usepackage[T1]{fontenc} % <-- needed if you use csquotes with "german=guillemets"
\usepackage[german=quotes]{csquotes} % or: german=guillemets

\enquote{Operational Technology}

"{}Operational Technology"
