Open the document in which you want to insert the accents.
Press and hold a letter on the keyboard that has accents available for it, such as the letter E. A menu appears. A menu does not appear if you press a letter that does not have any available accents. Instead, the character or letter repeats on the screen.
Move the mouse over the accent to select it. Alternatively, pick the accent you want to use, and note that there is a number below each accent. Press the corresponding number on your keyboard to select the accent with that number. Make sure to let go of the shift key if the letter is capitalized to avoid entering a special character from the number keys. The menu remains on the screen even when you let go of the letter key. The selected accent is highlighted and enters the text automatically.
