Duolingo's Diacritics Are Hard to See in Correct Answers at Bottom.

Can something be done to emphasize the diacritics in the answers at the bottom of the screen? Maybe change the color of the type to black or change the typeface? The acute accents over the letter "i" in particular are hardly larger than the dot and are hard to see. And since I tend to miss accents, this issue is especially relevant for me. :-)

I'm having the same problem with turkish. But it's easy to fix with a few lines of CSS. I made a tiny chrome extension, to download it:


You'll have to unpack the file, I recommend 7zip if your operating system can't do that on it's own.

In chrome open the menu, More tools, extensions and click on "Developer mode" and then "Load unpacked extension". Navigate to the folder you just unpacked, and voilá, style is changed. You'll have to reload the exercise page if you're on it right then.

By the way. You should NEVER download random extensions from the internet. I recommend that you read both the json and the css file to ensure they are harmless.

The extension is a big help. Lingots for you.


í and i do look similar. But I don't think changing the font is on DL's priority list.


I agree. They accents are difficult to see.
