Hey, I'm very glad to be starting Czech, it's great to get into a course the moment it's released! Thanks so much, I'm sure it's going to be fantastic!

One query I had was, when will the accented characters be added? I'm fine with using a Czech keyboard for now, but I think it'd be easier to have the extra characters there to click.

Thanks a lot, děkuji!

Edit: They're here!

I agree that the accent characters would be nice. Keyboard is handy if you plan to do the reverse course though.

Was just about to ask this... I do a lot of these lessons on a computer that has no easy way of typing haceks (see, that c is missing it), and would like to be able to include them. When I did the Esperanto course, there were buttons you could click on to enter the letters with circumflexes.

For other people coming here and looking for advice on how to type a hacek, my Android phone lets you type them by holding the letter down, and on my Mac, you press Option+V and then the letter that the hacek goes on.

Follow-up: they were there when I did my lesson today. All the háček-ed letters, plus the acute accents, and the ů. There was also an up-arrow; I wasn't sure what that was for. Very convenient to have all these letters clickable now!

For anyone using a German (QWERTZ) keyboard, I can recommend the "Europatastatur 2.0" keyboard layout. I have yet to come across a diacritic not on there.

I am afraid this is not a question to be asked here. The contributors have 0 power over technical functionality of the system....

The only advice we can give you is to install a Czech keyboard on whatever device you are using (I recommend the QWERTY version of CZ keyboard) and learn to use that.
