Please accept the ň !
I love duolingo so far, but one thing hugely annoys me and that is the fact that I have to reach for the mouse and click on the screen every time ñ is required, which is not present on keyboard in my part of the worlds. HOWEVER we have very similar looking character ň which is often used in spanish text in here and I would like to ask you (or beg you even) to add this as accepted one. I don't mind if an owl will say that I have a typo in my answer everytime I use it, as long as I don't loose heart for this.
Please please please help with this. Without it, for example timed practise is not a chance for me and I really like that feature. Thanks
If you use Windows, then holding Alt and typing 164 on the numerical keypad will produce ñ, and typing 165 instead produces Ñ. Also, if you are using the US-International keyboard layout (not the same as US-English), then indeed AltGr + n writes ñ, and you can also use AltGr to produce accented í, ú, é, á.
but the easiest thing if we use windows , we can go to control pane>clock language and region>change keyboards and other input methods>change keyboards>add>ok(after choosing the language as in your case spanish)>apply(at the bottom of the panel)>ok(also at the bottom of the panel just beside it)
and then in the bottom right , in the left of the clock then wi-fi , battery and other options you might something written like 'EN' click on the arrow beside it and then coose your keyboard -
some options in the keyboard- click ' button and type a letter ,eg- a , it will make it á and then click the button and you will get ç, when you click the ; button you get ñ
I use https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/abctajpu/ and simply hit the insert key while on the letter to add the accent. I added this to user defined macros, n=ñ|N=Ñ|a=á|e=é|i=í|o=ó|A=Á|E=É|I=Í|O=Ó|U=Ú|u=ú|v=ü|V=Ü|
