When Can We Type Accents?
Now, I don't usually create two discussion on one day, but I think that this question can use an answer. That is (like in the title), when can we type accents? I don't want to learn Swedish without the accent marks, or else I would be learning it wrong. Tack så mycket.
Yes you can. At least on a mac you type alt/option button + u for umlauts, then the umlauts will appear and you type the letter you want umlaut-ed. Alt/option + the button to the left of 1 and ! for `, e for ´, i for ˆ, o for ø, c for ç, q for œ, s for ß, quotation marks/apostraphe for æ. I don't know how to do the circle above the "a" in swedish though.
Å lowercase should still be option+a, but that's not working here in Duolingo forums. (It works elsewhere on my computer, including elsewhere in Chrome.) I got the capital A-angstrom by doing shift-option-a. ÅAÅA. Huh. When I do option-a here, the keyboard responds as if I'm pressing a completely nonfunctional series.
Edit: Someone below pointed out that you can hold down the a and get options, just like iOS. If this isn't happening for you, you might need to turn on a setting in Keyboards.
Depending on your operating system and physical keyboard layout you may be able to switch to a keyboard layout that allows quick access to those letters (note: In Swedish ÄÅÖ are letters on its own, not letters with accents). If your keyboard is US you could switch in your operating system to "US International" and can access these letters via modified A, O, W, P. I have a German keyboard set to "T2" (German + International) and can AltGr + A for Æ, AltGr + O for Ø... oh, wait, wrong language, I already have Ä+Ö ;-). Sadly Å is the one letter that I can't easily access (Shift+AltGr+Ü, A) but it is easy on US International (AltGr / right Alt + W, which is close enough to A to remember). Just do a Google Image search for "keyboard us international" to see the layout.
