N9 French virtual keyboard bug - unable to enter à (a grave), é (e acute), è (e grave), etc.

On my Nokia N9, with the French virtual keyboards set, I am unable to enter essential characters such as " à " (a grave), " é " (e acute), " è " (e grave), etc.

 

Is there a way to enter these characters? Or a solution to this bug?

 

The only accented character supported for inputs is " ç " (c with a cedillla). This character is rarely used compared to à (a with grace accent), é (e with an acute accent) and è (e with a grave accent).

 

N900 (physical and virtual) keyboards supported all the above and other accented characters.

 

A weird twist, there are multiple types of quotation marks supported on the French virtual keyboard (which one would deem totally redundant).

Have you tried long-pressing a character on the virtual keyboard (e.g. "a"), you should then get a selection of the special characters.

Akashiiii, as Pj98 says, you have to long-press on a character to see the special ones. I've got the french keyboard too and i there's no problem with mine. Just press and move your finger to left or right.
