Problems with input

My keyboard works perfectly well with Word or Notepad, but in Duolingo I cannot put accents on vowels. Choosing an accented vowel with the mouse however works. I'm I the only one with that problem?

Here's a (competing) Spanish-learning site that explains this issue well at this link:


In short, set up the U.S. International keyboard as an option. Then, one can type the special Spanish characters with two-letter sequences, like tilde then n for the ñ, but type a tilde followed by a space to insert an actual tilde (~). Hope this helps.


Sorry, I'm afraid this will not help. My keyboard is an AZERTY keyboard (Belgium). With WORD it works fine, but not with Duolingo. In the beginning however it worked with Duolingo, but now nomore.
