How to type accented letters not directly available on the keyboard

If you need to type in a language that uses accented characters (such as à, è or ñ), the following shortcuts may prove handy.

Note: For this to work, the accented characters must exist in the language you have selected—they will not work, for instance, with an iPad set on US layout. Language can be changed by cmd + space as explained above.

´ = ´ (acute accent, not apostrophe) and then the letter—for example, ´e types é

` = ` (grave accent) and then the letter—for example `o types ò

¨ = " (quotation mark, or trema/umlaut if available) and then the letter—for example, "u types ü

ˆ = ^ (caret) and then the letter—for example, ^a types â

˜ = ~ (tilde) and then the letter—for example, ~n types ñ
