Accent marks in Google Docs

In the foreign language classroom, you will need to know how to put accent marks for your target language. I like using Easy Accents. It’s an add-on available in the Chrome Web Store. From a Google Doc, press add-ons and then Get add-ons. It supports several languages. 

Once it’s installed, you click on Add-ons on the top of your Google Doc and then Easy Accents. Screenshot 2015-11-17 at 3.14.47 PM.png

Next a menu will open on the right. Click on Easy Accents- Start. It will open a menu on the right of the screen. Select the language.

In a few seconds you will have all the special characters you need for that language. Screenshot 2015-11-17 at 3.20.19 PM.png
This menu will remain open on this document as long as you have it open. To include one of these characters in your text, simply click on it and it will add it wherever the cursor was in your document.
