Adding Accent Marks on Apple Devices

Do your Apple devices have a foreign accent?

Have you wondered how to type character marks over the vowels of foreign words? Well, thanks to the Small Dog Electronics newsletter, Kibbles & Bytes, you can learn how to add those sexy little accent marks over vowels, if your Mac uses Lion OSX 10.7, and your handheld devices use their new iOS.

For those of you using Lion, the same steps you take on your iPhone (or the like) are now applicable.

To produce an accent on your Mac using 10.7, press and (briefly) hold the letter that needs the accent mark.

Your accent character choices will then appear, and you can navigate to the one you need
