The keyboard no longer shows accented vowels. Where did they go and can they please come back?
I agree! While it's possible to put in accents (if you press and hold a letter on the regular ios keyboard, all the accented/tilde'd options for that letter will appear), but it was so much easier when those letters appeared as part of the keyboard. I had finally started using accents in French, and now I don't want to bother anymore. Please bring the accented vowels back!
I am having exactly the same problem! Plus--the option to hear a phrase spoken more slowly just disappeared! What happened? It was working find yesterday (Feb 10, 2014). Did some update undo those very useful features? Plus--I keep getting told I'm missing the accents, but I have no way to add them! Please fix this, DUOLINGO!
After a week there is still no Spanish keyboard and no way to add necessary accents--though what I write continues to be called incorrect on the "grading" function. We need that Spanish keyboard to learn the language correctly. I also wrote an email asking for help--but no response. Can you fix this glitch or respond in some way, please?
