In Word one can simply type an o or u plus Alt-771 (for Unicode combining double acute accent) to get these characters, but on Duo, this yields the less-than-endearing heart emoji ♥

Anybody know if there is a character sequence that words with Duo's input interface?

I use this extended English International keyboard (which saves having to install seperate keyboards for most of the languages on here), on which they are produced by AltGr+shift+' followed by an o or u (a convenient combination as it falls comfortably under three fingers of the right hand).

With the US International keyboard layout which I use, it seems to be AltGr+Shift+2 then o or u.

That looks like precisely what I'm looking for. That's also the keyboard layout I use; however, it doesn't seem to be working for me. Is it the US International layout in Windows? If I hit Right Alt+Shift+2 and then o or u, I get a plain o or u.

I have Linux not Windows, but I thought it should be the same. Strange: Is this what you have otherwise? If you hit AltGr+Shift+2 twice, do you get the accents by themselves?

Yeah, it seems the Linux and Windows versions are slightly different, with Linux being better for some Eastern European languages (/ pedantic Latin). I think I've got this. AltGr+Shift+2 or AltGr+Shift+2+2 get me nothing at all. AltGr+2 gets ².

Okay. Sorry I can't help. Maybe you can modify the keymap somehow (I haven't used Windows for a while). Anyway, hope Hungarian goes well for you.

I definitely have more accent keys than that key map. I checked it out completely today. I have this

Maybe this is what I will end up with. I hadn't known about the distinction between the scrolling techniques with Alt+Shift vs. Windows key+space (which is what I always use), so this does look like a manageable option than it this morning. Thanks again.

Depending where you live, that can be pretty hard to find.

you can install any layout for the computer, like you don't actually need the physical keyboard to look the same way

When you said "get a normal keyboard", I assumed you meant physical keyboard.

With a Mac keyboard, simply hold down the key for the vowel you wish to have the accent marks added for an extra second, and international accent options for the vowels will appear on your computer screen. Then you choose the accent you want placed on the vowel in question. This method works for most accents, on most vowels - although frustratingly not all.

Another Mac solution creates a very handy, tiny, virtual Hungarian (or indeed any other language) keyboard on your screen. Need an accent? Just point the curser to the desired accented vowel - and you're typing like a DuoLinguist! This works perfectly for all vowels and all accents.

How? System Preferences > Keyboard > Input Sources > Hit + and choose the keyboard for the language you are interested it. Small flag icon of the country you want to use appears in the ToolBar, and you can bring-up the tiny virtual keyboard on the upper right-hand of your screen. Good luck!
