How to type letters with the lines/bars on top

How do you type those letters? What are they called? I want to be able to type them out my self. Examples: Drīvose, ābra (I'm on a Chromebook so if anybody knows a way to add them to keyboard if not already there that'd be great)

I know only that they appear under the text box, so you can click on them. But not sure where to get them all on one keyboard as it looks like a mix from various languages.

I know all but y are part of Maori but I can't get that to work. When I'm on mobile I can type it but on the desktop, I can't and since Duolingo mobile doesn't let me type the words of the language I'm learning it's useless

Can you change keyboard on desktop? Unfortunately I can't help you with an app since I don't use it, and have no idea what the differences are. I just assumed it's possible to type words instead of using word bank - like on desktop. Maybe someone else has a better answers for this. Sorry.

I was also searching for a language that uses all macron vowels plus n tilde, but I could not find one. Maybe you can search for some kind of international keyboard that has all these features
