"Mädchen" can also be spelled "Maedchen" and should be recognized. I dont always feel like searching for the "ä" in my keyboard. Same with any other letter with an umlaut

That alternative spelling is only acceptable when it is not possible for technical reasons to input special characters - in website names for example. Duolingo accepts special characters and facilitates their input. Therefore, you should practice using them.

Is there a reason why "vier" is not capitalised or is it just a typo?
