Default Sending DTMF codes during phone conversation

Please Login to Remove!

I have to send the DTMF code #9 during a phone conversation to control a remote device.
Each time I try to send #9, it sends A9 and I don't know how to solve this problem.

Default I already tried typing Alt A

In fact I already tried with Alt A , because I have an AZERTY keyboard, but it produced a A instead of the #.
Typing Alt A produces a # when writing an sms or an email, but it produces a A during a phone conversation !!!

During a phone call, you shouldn't have to use the ALT key. It should be defaulting to the NUM characters which would include the # symbol. So you should be able to just press your A key alone to get the #.
