Marked wrong for lack of an accent
I'm flagging this, I sent an error report but I get the impression the 'other' reports can get lost in the mix and this seems like a problem that needs sorting sooner rather than later!
Also, I have an incipient migraine today so I apologise in advance if I'm either missing something obvious (possible!) or don't completely make sense (likely!).
I got asked to translate TV set, wrote телевизор, and got marked wrong - the correct answer given was телевизор, but with an accent over the и (which I can't write on this keyboard, sorry). It seems like somewhere backstage Duolingo has got the impression the accent marks used as a teaching aid are an integral part of the spelling, maybe? At least, that is the best explanation I was able to come up with. I don't know if this is an issue the mods can deal with or something that needs taking up with HQ, but it seemed important so I'm flagging it.
Like I said, my head is trying to do a migraine so I may be missing something, so I am attaching a screen capture in case that's the case/or to show to whoever needs to know:
Just to add to what Shady said: On the iOS йцукен keyboard (I'm guessing it might be the same for other not physical keyboards) it appears on a long press of е, so ё is on the same key.
If you can't find it in either of those places, your computer or device should somewhere online or in its memory have a map of which keys are which :)
I think this is another one.https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BzFZ7XZ-mS5dcWJydFVpdFkxem8/view?usp=docslist_api. It marked me wrong. There's no way I can put that accent on my Russian or English keyboard.
