Accents/umlauts

Any chance you can make available an easy typing button for accented letters in Finnish? Tips often say pay attention to the accents, but there's no way to type them.

Å Ä Ö arent accents, they are letters in the alphabet just like A, B, C etc.

Here is a comment where the creators explained when another user asked for what you asked for. Hope it helps! https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/39872018?comment_id=39872535

thanks for the link. Yes, I know they are letters in the alphabet, but duolingo constantly reminds me to "pay attention to the accents", so maybe they should also alter that little message. On a PC keyboard the shortcuts I use for umlauts don't work in web browsers, but it's good to know the buttons are coming.

The easiest solution is to install the Finnish keyboard. You can switch back and forth between keyboards using a hotkey. The ö and ä are to the right of the L key when the Finnish keyboard is selected.
