Special language character panel/chart integration for Rich Content Editor

Special language character panel/chart integration for Rich Content Editor

(3)
Faculty at our institution would like the integration of a special language character panel or chart into the Rich Content Editor. They feel it would be easier for students than the current methods of typing or copy/pasting special characters into their assignments and discussions. They feel it would also be easier for teachers of language courses to give feedback if special characters were more easily accessible in that way.

This would be very helpful for my institution, particularly for our Voice Production and Speech classes.

I often have my students submit assignments directly through Canvas. As a French teacher and student, it is very time consuming to use the Character Map feature on my computer to add accents.

Is there a way for Canvas to make this easier for language students?

Either an accent bank or something that students can type on their keyboard as they can in a Word Doc?

I regularly have faculty and students asking for a built-in special character option in Canvas.  It is as essential as having math equations available for faculty in those classes.  This is pretty much a no brainer.
