Re: A Note of Appreciation on NVDA and Foreign Languages

Can confirm as a Chinese speaker as well! Typing works great for the
most part, though choosing candidates in the IME can be a little
wonky, and some synthesizers react oddly to punctuation and the like.
But for the most part, foreign language support in NVDA, in Mandarin
and Japanese which are the languages I primarily use, is fantastic!
Not without its kinks, but certainly more than usable.

Hi everyone,

I just thought I'd share this with y'all as I'm really ecstatic right now.

Mandarin Chinese is my other language and it is the language spoken in my
household, and I had not thought of trying this till just now but I went
and installed the Chinese simplified language pack in Windows 10, switched
to a Chinese speech synth (thanks synth ring for making this so quick and
easy and Windows OneCore voices because the OneCore Chinese speech synths
are actually decent) and I was able to read the website without
issue. Then I went and switched my braille table to Chinese Mandarin grade
1 and when I browsed the baidu site and a Chinese word doc not only was the
speech reading it out flawlessly but it was also displaying flawless
Chinese braille on my display as well. Wow. I had no idea it would work
this well. I have not yet tried to type Chinese characters into a word doc
on anything like that but I have good faith it'll work and the fact that
foreign language support is this good makes me so darn happy.

Anyhow, I just thought I'd send this note of appreciation because now I can
FINALLY work on improving my Mandarin literacy because before this, getting
access to Mandarin material was certainly a struggle, the combo of speech
and braille will really help me improve my Mandarin braille reading, and I
now have way more access to Mandarin documents and websites so now I'm so
