Android keyboard for Senior Citizen - no special characters on long press

I'm trying to help my mom with a tablet I set up for her (Samsung Tab 4 8") - it's working out well as it is light and a good size. With a foam case that has a handle on the side we have been able to reduce the issues with her inadvertently touching the screen as she moves her finger to tap a desired item - a stylus helps, too. However, when typing, he often touches long enough to get the special characters up and that's causing confusion and a lot of errors. I've tried the built-in Samsung keyboard and can't see how to turn that off. I've tried the Google keyboard and it is simpler, but still subject to the long press behavior. I'm not finding anything when searching except simple, big button keyboards for *phones*. Am I missing a setting? Any other keyboards to try?

Also, Teamviewer / Quick Support is really handy for long distance elder tech support...
