The option to use accent marks and diacritical marks when using iPhone or iPad is already available with your device’s onscreen keyboard. The sentence in this example is written in Spanish. It needs a diacritical and accent mark. We can add these marks as we’re writing the text. I wrote the sentence without the marks as an example.
We’ll rewrite the sentence below with the appropriate marks. We need a diacritical mark, a tilde, over the second “n” in ninos.
As we type the “n” we’ll hold the letter on the keyboard for a second. Above the letter “n”, an “n” with an accent mark will appear and an “n” with the diacritical mark we need, tilde, will also appear.
To select the “n” with the tilde, we’ll slide our finger over to that key.
With the Enye in place, we need to add an accent mark to the letter “a” in estan.
We’ll repeat the process of holding the letter on the keyboard. This time, the letter has several accent and diacritical marks available. We’ll select the appropriate accent mark by moving our finger to that key.
The sentence now has the appropriate accent and diacritical marks.
