# Accents over Bars in LaTeX

Neither combination of the following two elements renders a felicitous result: \={\'o} ~ \'{\=o}. In the first case the bar comes over the accent; in the second the accent appears right before the barred letter. How can I make a grave or acute accent over a barred letter?

Is this for IPA content? Can we see your font setup? –  Qrrbrbirlbel Jun 13 '13 at 19:45

The ipa package allows

\documentclass{standalone}\usepackage{ipa}
\begin{document}
\texttt{ipa} \diatop[{\diatop[\'|\=]}|o]
\end{document}


The tipa package has \textacutemacron:

\documentclass{standalone}\usepackage{tipa}
\begin{document}
\texttt{tipa} \textacutemacron{o}
\end{document}


And the phonetic package has the following to offer (which seems to not work under T1 font encoding):

\documentclass{standalone}\usepackage{phonetic}
\begin{document}
\texttt{phonetic} \acbar{\'}{o}
\end{document}
