it should let you type them in the course, like with french when you would type in accented letters it would have them on the course

It is there on the pc version. But I also try to do lessons on my phone with the mobile version (and hopefully with the app at some point). French is good suggestion..will try that

I have used a Latin keyboard for mobile that supports the vowels with macrons (for example, MultiLing Keyboard), but I do not know if it is suitable for High Valyrian. Perhaps other apps are better. =)

On Android, the Google Gboard English keyboard has all the Valyrian characters except the long y. It has āēīōūñ.

Gboard also has a version for iOS. I just installed it. Thanks for letting us know about the app.

I use the swiftkey keyboards..any suggestions in there?

I don't know swiftkey.

But this page suggests by my reading (hopefully) that you can make all the accented characters available on any keyboard: https://support.swiftkey.com/hc/en-us/articles/201448422-How-do-I-insert-accented-characters-

The relevant information is short:

If you wish to enable all accented characters:

  1. Open the SwiftKey Hub
  2. Tap 'Keys'
  3. Check ‘Accented Characters

It's kind of there but you have to stop typing mid-word and click a small letter icon and then go on typing. When there's like one long letter per word that gets pretty annoying. It would be nice to be allowed to type a_ or something like that for a long a.
