Re: The Braille tables need updating.

Hi Joseph,

The UEB tables should be stable in this release of liblouis. A new release will be out soon. NVDA may want to upgrade to that.

Hi John,
This is the exact concern I had back in 2013 when I worked on en-ueb table
series. Although it might be too late to change it (as the UEB entries were
added when the old uebc-g1/g2 tables were in use), I think at least talking
to NV Access people might yield something for us to consider.
For others: lately I find myself acknowledging many things... Yes, I am the
person who created and organized a massive effort to improve current Unified
English Braille (UEB) tables that ships with NVDA and many other screen
readers. Perhaps the most significant thing I did with that table series was
adding mathematical symbols, Greek letters, among many other symbols. Many
improvements have been made since the en-ueb table series first appeared in
2013.
Cheers,
Joseph

I don't find the English UEB tableO
in the list of output tables.

Hello,

The Unified English Braille table is not listed in the output Tables
list. I have NVDA 2020.2.
Please include the en-ueb-g2.ctb table in the next release.

Thanks,
John
