Typing Accents

Is there a way to type in accents?

In other words, is there a way for me to type a word with an accent with my keyboard without clicking on the accent button on the screen?

You first need to set your keyboard preference to international. You will then be able to combine punctuation with letters.

For instance:

  • " and then u gives ü
  • ' and c gives ç
  • ' and e gives é
  • ` and a give à
  • ^ and i gives î
  • ~ and n gives ñ

How do you type in accents on an iphone or mobile device?

On an iphone, hold down the letter.

For example, to type "á", hold down the "a" button until you see the accent options.
