We are happy to announce that é has been added as a special character button to the website version of the Norwegian course. This means that words like the following can be typed without the need of a special keyboard or keystrokes:

  • én meaning one
  • idé meaning idea
  • allé meaning avenue
  • komité meaning committee
  • kafé meaning cafe

Thank you to the wonderful Duolingo developers for making this possible!

Vi snakkes!

Is there a way to access the special characters on the pc without using the mouse?

Using a keyboard layout with dead keys. That means you can press first ´, then e, and get an é.

Momo, my go-to for this is US-International, but that might not be applicable if you're some where else.

Thank you, I have US-International and I also know how to type those letters using ASCII commands but I thought it would be god if I could get to the letters shown under the text (those that I can click on with the mouse) by using Ctrl+down or something like that. Thanks anyway.

The accent can be omitted from all of these words. It is only mandatory for geographical names and people's names, so both 'crème fraîche' and 'creme fraiche' are correct, but only 'Genève', not 'Geneve'.

It still would be nice if the accents under the lessons could be accessed by pressing a certain key combination rather than goint to the mouse.

Hi, on almost any mobile phone or tablet you can long-press the appropriate letters to get a pop-up that provides alternative characters. Long-press a for å and æ, and long-press o for ø. A long press on e should bring up é.
