Accent shortcuts (like in Word) don't work
In Word, if I type CTRL+SHIFT+^ followed by u I get a û. Similar shortcuts exist to get characters such as é à ö ç.
These shortcuts don't work when I type them in Teams.
Thank you for your replies and clarification.
Sorry for misinterpretation.

As Gstar mentioned, I was not reporting an issue but a missing functionality that exists in other Microsoft applications.
Testing with the latest version of Teams, I still cannot enter accented characters from the keyboard using Ctrl plus accent keys combinations.
Yes, I still observe this. I'm not sure you've understood the issue though.
Try Ctrl-, then c. In Outlook and Word, that'll give you a ç.
Why can this not be done in Teams?
This is very important for people writing in different language with one keyboard.
It is not humanly possible to remember all ALT+NUM shortcut and the functionality of Word to use CTRL or SHIFT and the letter where the accent is located is extremely useful.
This was working fine in Skype for Business and with Microsoft pushing for organizations to use Teams in replacement of Skype for Business, we lost the ability to write correctly in accented language in Teams.
