I have pretty good success writing in French using printing
handwriting. Can write accented characters just fine. I hardly have
to correct what I write. For those tough words, I add them to the
dictionary. Of course, that forces you to write in printing, which
was the way I have been writing, so it was easy for me but might not
be that easy for you.
