[Athen] Seeking recommendations for a Bluetooth Keyboard for iPad (Voiceover User)

Hi Tracy,

Just my two cents but apple bluetooth keyboards are great and work well
with accent marks too. If you hold down a key on the keyboard for a few
seconds, options will pop up with accent marks. I only know this because
my husband is Croatian and my last name now has an accent mark!

You can also install "new keyboards" to use on your iPhone that are in
other languages. I have a Croatian keyboard installed on mine.

Hope that helps!
