Bug in 2018 Braille

John J. Boyer


Using the U.S. Grade 2 table and NVDA 2018.2 I have observed the following. When a word begins with a capital letter
both the dot 6 capital sign and the dot 7 on the letter itself are shown. This does not happen if the letter is part of
contraction. For eexample, If the word is Tooth dot 6 preceeds the translation and the beginning t also has dot 7. If
the word is That the translation has dot 6 poreceding thr T that contracts that, and the T has no dot 7.

This version of NVDA uses liblouis 2.4. The latest release is liblouis 2/6/0. Hopefully the bug has been corrected in
this release.
