Numbers 2

I am unable to complete this section. Asked for Czech translation for 'a number' which I correctly answer as 'cislo'. Duolingo responds as incorrect and corrects my answer as 'cislo' - exactly the same as my answer. This keeps happening so am unable to get past this section. Any advice on what to do much appreciated

Sorry if this is a stupid question, but are you writing cislo or číslo?

It is not a stupid question but I am writing cislo without the accents as I do not have access to a Czech keyboard on my phone. However I have been doing this for months and have never had a problem as Duolingo always accepts my Czech text without the accents so I am thinking that the cislo problem is nothing to do with accents?

It is very easy to install a Czech keyboard to a smartphone. You should definitely do it. Extremely easy in fact. I even have and use keyboards like old cyrillic, glagolitic, classical greek. Just choose a package in the Apple or Google marketplace and install.

No, Duolingo will NOT accept Czech without proper diacritics (háček ˇ is not an accent). Sometimes it will accept it as a typo, but often not.

Without the accent your answer is wrong. c and č are completely different letters.

I think I must have been lucky as I have been using Czech Duolingo for a few months now without any problems without using diacritics. Would be grateful if you could point me in the right direction for installing a Czech keyboard on my iPhone as I have been unable to find any apps that do this. Many thanks

A quick search said to open an app that uses a keyboard and click on the world or smiley icon and touch and hold it and keyboard settings will come up. I have an old ipad and it was under settings-general-keyboards.
