This tutorial explains how to insert accents (or accent marks) in a Google Docs document.

When we have to use an accent or symbol (like á, ü, ç, etc.) with a letter in a Google Docs or any other document, we either rush for Google search or insert the accent manually (using Alt+code). However, the task becomes lengthy and time-consuming when we have to insert multiple accent marks and that too in different languages. To make this task simple, here is a free Google Docs add-on, named Easy Accent.

Easy Accent provides its sidebar to choose the language and shows all the accent you can use for that language. You can insert any accent in a single click. You can also replace the selected text with an accent.
