This "acute" really looks like a printing error to me, not like a real
acute. But if you were to pronounce o-e distnictly (which I don't think is
the case here), you'd use the e-tréma sign: Oëchtringen. There is a German
comedian whose last name is written "Hoëcker" since it is pronounced
"ho-eck-er" rather than "höck-er".
