Writing script and accented characters in the Content Library

Accent support is available for all of our fully-supported languages when creating Vocabulary and Fact lists, and editing titles in the Content Library. When editing content that falls outside of that scope, you will need to rely on any built in support within your browser for writing these characters.

In this article

This article is for the Content Library. For instructions on how to write accented and script characters in the Student Zone, check out the following article: How do I write Script and Accented Characters?

Mac OS

MacOS has some useful built-in features that allow you to type using accented and script characters. You can find more details on writing scripted characters on Apple's Support website.


When you're writing in Languages that use accented Latin script characters, we recommend using the English (US-International) keyboard, as the key layout can be different on other keyboards (like the French keyboard).

Although Māori uses the Latin script, the Māori keyboard follows the same layout as the standard US version, so we recommend using the Māori keyboard when you're working on content for this language.

With Languages that use other scripts, such as Arabic or Japanese, we recommend using the keyboard native to those scripts.

For instructions on how to add keyboards on a Windows computer, see Microsoft's article. For more information on how to use these characters, they have a separate article
