The H is silent and the stress is on the first syllable...

Tried one of those computer translation tools once. I typed in "Hola! Como estas?" which is Spanish for "Hello! How are you?".

The translation was "Hello! Like these?"
Became the catch phrase for our girlie weekend in Barcelona...

Sorry, thought you meant written accents. Shitemum is right about the pronunciation.
DeathbyDora, then translation was right cos you didn't include the accent on the second word. Hello how are you = ¿Como estás?
Like these? ¿Como estas?
