when i type in a sentence, it says almost correct! when it says almost correct, its the same just with a slash because i cant do that.well, actaully i do but not on my chromebook. For example, my name is Karen Bui with a slash on top of the u cause im vietnamese but im here be cause i dont know alot.<pre>
also who else is a kid that is vietnamese that went to America when they are young so that they can only speak and sometime make out words and read it correctly
Does anyone else put the write answer, but once you hit enter, your answer is counted as 'almost correct'?
Maybe you're using the wrong combination of accents which can look the same? It should be cá, not cá. The first one has the Unicode character small-a-with-acute-accent (which is one symbol), while the second one is the Unicode character small-a followed by the Unicode character modifying-sign-acute-accent (or something like that). So while the correct cá must consist of just 2 characters, the "slightly" correct cá consists of 3. Maybe this causes the problem?
I'm using the Vietnamese telex input method recommended by duolingo here: https://incubator.duolingo.com/courses/vi/en/status
In that system there is only one accent with that appearance, so it should not be causing the issue. If the recommended system is giving the wrong character, then they should really either change their recommendation or modify the answers to accept it.
In Unicode, there is officially no difference between those two; they're different ways to encode the same thing as a stream of bits (well, a stream of characters that is further encoded as a stream of bits in some way, most often UTF-8). If Duolingo runs all input through one of the standard Unicode normalization algorithms before evaluating it, then it will count them both correct (or both incorrect when appropriate).
