Typing accents on an ipad

I've just switched to using an iPad but am finding that the "hold down the letter" thing in order to type accents, isn't working. Any ideas?

Bonjour Deborah,
It appears from online question about this that there are two options:
«If the accented choices DO appear on your iPhone/iPad, then you must be using the on-screen keyboard, and NOT an external Bluetooth keyboard. Hence this webpage does not apply. For the on-screen keyboard, you can just press and hold the letter-to-be-accented, and when the accent-choices appear, slide your finger slightly up and to the side, and then release over the accent of their choice»
The other is to switch keyboard to the French AZERTY one. Since I do not have an iPad, I would suggest contacting apple support to learn how to reconfigure to the French keyboard.
J'espère que cela vous aidera.
