Hi Tracey,

I use the Apple Bluetooth keyboard with my iPhone and it works quite well. I'm not sure about foreign language accent marks.

Since I know there are quite a few screen reader users on this list I thought I would pose this to the ATHEN group.

One of our students who is a Voice Over user has ask for recommendations for a Bluetooth keyboard to use with her iPad Air 2. She has heard that some Bluetooth keyboards have had problems with Voice Over.

The student is also looking for tips or suggestions for more easily typing foreign language accent marks (French, etc.) with the blue tooth keyboard or if there are keyboards that have special tools to handle accents marks efficiently.
