* accent characters can be removed by UDF

* you can use extra field that contains non-accented version of your data
(accents can be removed either by UDF, but also using standard PSQL
inside trigger)

* you can write your own accent insensitive collation driver
(kind of special UDF)

* you can use Firebird 2 where already are some accent-insensitive collations
