Make Accents In Google Docs Easy With Easy Accents
As I use Google Docs for more and more projects one limitation that has frustrated me is the difficult of adding accents to my work. Whether it is something as simple as correctly spelling an author’s name or a more complex project like writing a paper in a foreign language, this has proven to be a significant limitation with Google Docs. With the Easy Accents Add-On it is simple to add the correct accent mark in a wide number of languages.
Adding the add-on to your Google Docs is as simple as one click. Once it is installed, you can access it from your Add-ons menu as seen in the screen shot above. Each time you use Easy Accents, you have to select which language you want to use. The add-on currently offers accents for 15 different languages: Ancient Latin, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Esperanto, Finnish, French, German, Hungarian, Icelandic, Italian, Maori, Portuguese, Sami, and Spanish. They have also added new languages over time, so hopefully more will be added in the future.
Once you have selected a language, a menu with the accent marks for that language pops out on the right side of the screen. Using one of the accents is as simple as clicking on it in that menu. If you frequently use one of these language, it is well worth installing this free add-on.
