Re: [nvda-addons] Automatic switch to coresponding braille output table

Adriani Botez


thanks for your suggestions. Regarding second point, it is not required that all national braille entities have to agree about that. An user who wants to read miltilingual texts would learn that standard by himself because it would be a confortable way to read multi lingual texts. I have learned 8 dot computer braille by myself in order to make use of more braille cells on a braille display even though in Romania everone learns 6 dot braille in the school. And after all, the more people learn a certain standard, the probable will be that braille entities will adopt it. It would be an optional output table and nothing more.

1. I chose german 8 dot computer braille as first output table and
turkish grade 1 as second output table. The specific letters for
Turkish language are automatically displayed correctly. But NVDA
takes other signs (i.e. capital letter) and displays both
possibilities on the braille display (8 dot computer braille and
grade 1). When I put the cursor on a capital letter, the letter is
being displayed as if it is a small letter. When I move the cursor
to the right, the capital letter is displayed with dots 4 and 6 for
grade 1 and dot 7 for 8 dot computer braille.
Adrian, you can toggle that feature on NVDA, Preferences, Braille settings menu.
It is named "Expand to computer braille for the word at the cursor".

2.Braille output tables have to be adjusted in such a way that for
example a 8 dot computer braille standard is being created for all
languages. That means, that i.e. fullstop is dot 6 or number two is dots
1, 2, 8 in all output tables.
I do not believe that all national Braille authorities will reach an
agreement about that...
