How to type in accents on regular keyboard

Just took the first test. I don't have Spanish accents on my keyboard. How am I supposed to put them in?

You should see buttons under the answer field that let you add accented letters. Alternatively, you can set up your computer to let you type them directly.

I see some accents on my desktop computer. When inputting answers on my ipad, there weren't any.How do you set up your computer to have the accents?

On your iPad you should be able to access accents by tapping-and-holding on a letter. You can also install another keyboard using these instructions: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4509

Instructions for setting up your computer for typing accents are here: http://duolingo.wikia.com/wiki/Guide_to_keyboard_layouts_and_input_methods
