Keyboard shortcuts using CTRL for accents not working

Issue #

We are struggling to get the keyboard shortcuts working for international language accents. The button works just fine on the toolbar and we can insert this way, but our students are used to using the keyboard shortcuts in order to work with these accents. A post on EduGeek says that this is supported with EWP - But I have been unable to get this working during testing. Am I doing anything wrong?

Resolution Summary

Because we had to trap CTRL keystrokes to override certain tasks this also took out-of-action accented characters via the CTRL key.
Like with Microsoft Word use can also the "ALT Gr" as a replacement for the CTRL key.
