Typing accented letters on the iPhone

Declan FlashCards’ spelling exercises require typing accented letters for many of the available languages including Spanish, French, Italian and Portuguese. This is very simple to do on the iPhone/iPad, even without installing a language specific keyboard.

Just press and hold the corresponding non-accented letter and a pop-up showing all the possible accented versions of that letter will appear. Now just drag your finger to the accented letter you want and release.


Here is a video illustrating this for the Spanish accented letter ‘í ‘ in the word ‘sí ‘
