French Keyboard Missing 2 Accents

The French keyboard in the "Write It" exercises in the French modules is missing 2 accents: circumflex (accent circonflexe) â, ê, î, and diaeresis (tréma)ë, ï, ü .

Hi Brenda, 

These characters are actually available on the virtual keyboard; you may find this image helpful:

Hi Brenda, maybe International keyboard shortcuts https://web.archive.org/web/20130924204029/http://ml.hss.cmu.edu/mlrc/links/keyboardhelp.html#Mac will get you there for the rest of your life. (The link is for Mac users, so if you use Windows make sure you click the appropriate link.)

At a first glance, I wasn't very happy with these shortcuts as they look rather complicated. But believe me, it takes no more than five minutes to get used to them. - You will soon find out that  in French you hardly ever use more than four: ´, `, ^ and ¨.

I got so fond of these shortcuts that apart from French I use them in every day writings and e-mails. Worth trying!

Thank you for the replies. The ability to use circumflex (accent circonflexe) â, ê, î, and diaeresis (tréma)ë, ï, ü  were certainly not self evident.
