Can you add a category for the Phonetic Alphabet IPA? It would include special characters like the schwa? This would be very helpful for teachers. Thank you!

It would be great to add Swedish characters as I especially can't find an option for the (å) in any of the ones available :)

Are you planning on adding catalan accents anytime soon? It would be very helpful since I find myself jumping from the french, italian, portuguese and spanish ones everytime I have to write in my language. Also... what about google sheets? A version of easy accents for google sheets would also be great. A pretty good add-on. Thank you! :)

I just wish it would have Chinese accents. I need an e with a hat and an accent mark by the hat.

This add on is much easier to use than the impossible to remember keyboard shortcuts. My only complaints are that it is a bit slow to put out the letter, and it doesn't save the last language you usedd

This addon is amazing. It helps a lot when doing Latin and German in school. I had just downloaded the add-on today, and I already love it. If anything, the only problems I have are when you already have a selected format, (bold, italic, underline, etc.) but the accented letter I want is unformatted. Along with that, if the letter is in bold, the font is always Cambria (I think), when I want it to be something else. But these are only minor flaws, but I personally like this add-on. Definitely recommend this to others.

I have been so frustrated with the time consuming awkward way that our tech dept showed me to do accents. Mil gracias!! I haven't experienced the lag that others mentioned-swift and user friendly. My students will be so grateful.

It's great and has all the features but there is a one-second delay to write an accent. Also, please remove a with acute accent in french. It doesn't exist in french.
