As far as I know, there are no accents on digits or numbers.
I don't think there are any accents on characters in English either.

There are word used in English that come from other languages that
bring their accents with them (Ångstrom for example).

There are differences is the way numerals are printed and written.

Some people make the "7" with a small horizontal line in the middle to differentiate it from a "1".

Sometime a zero is printed with a slash  "Ø" to differentiate it from the capital letter O.

But these are not accents.

that is a good point.. but for a an English understanding person, the 52 characters will always be the base on which accent characters are built?

>>Sometime a zero is printed with a slash  "Ø" to differentiate it from the capital letter O. But these are not accents.

is there a specific term for the above concept with numerals?
