Configuring Latex for accented characters

In Mac the best alternative is to update Tex Live Utility. To do that, you should download the latest version of MacTex which will also include the latest version of Tex Live Utility. Here there is an example about how to use the package tipa \documentclass[10pt,a4paper]{article} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \usepackage{amsmath} \usepackage{amsfonts} \usepackage{amssymb} \usepackage{graphicx} \usepackage[OT1]{fontenc} \usepackage{tipa} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} %\usepackage[russian,english]{babel} \usepackage[left=2cm,right=2cm,top=2cm,bottom=2cm]{geometry} \author{Adam Sanchez} \begin{document} \textdotbreve{A}\textdotbreve{a} \end{document} The full table of latex symbols is attached.
