What are accents and diacritics?

Diacritics or accents are small glyphs or marks that sit above or below a letter. They help us understand how certain words should be pronounced, by demonstrating where to place emphasis or intonation on certain letters.

Remember - these tiny marks can also alter the meaning of words when they’re removed.

For example, the Spanish word canto means ‘I sing’, but cantó means somebody else sang in the past. A small change can make a big difference to the meaning of a word.

Why use this app?

Taking the accents off your text could be useful in a whole range of scenarios

1. Learning Games

Learning a new language? By stripping text of diacritics, learners are challenged to correctly place them back. It's an engaging way to improve language learning for kids or students.

2. Graphic Design

Graphic designers often have to get to grips with text in their projects. When dealing with fonts that don't support accents, this tool is a lifesaver.

Stripping down text can allow designers more control by manually placing accent marks themselves. It's a timely solution for creating text for flyers, business cards, invitations, and more.

3. SEO

SEO, or search engine optimisation, is vitally important if you want your website to show up on Google, but did you know that SEO-friendly URLs cannot contain diacritics?

Our tool helps give your web pages, images, and other media the best possible chance of showing up on search engines.
