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
It is for IPA. The font is the same as below. – Eric May 2 '15 at 19:15

The ipa package allows

\texttt{ipa} \diatop[{\diatop[\'|\=]}|o]

enter image description here

The tipa package has \textacutemacron:

\texttt{tipa} \textacutemacron{o}

enter image description here

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

\texttt{phonetic} \acbar{\'}{o}

enter image description here
