Character Information: What a godsend!


Ben J. Bloomgren
 

Hey all,


One of the newest add-ons for NVDA, created by Cyrille G. is an absolute godsend to me. I'm a language freak/geek, so Unicode values are part of my daily life. If I ever come upon a character which I don't know about, I press numpad 2 or NVDA+comma four times, and I'm in like flint! Merci beaucoup!

Glad to hear you found Cyrille's add-on and it's working well Ben!

For anyone wondering, here is the link to the add-on: https://addons.nvda-project.org/addons/charInfo.en.html

The add-ons page is regularly updated with new and interesting add-ons.  So, if you haven't checked it out lately, I'd encourage you to do so: https://addons.nvda-project.org/index.en.html

Also, if you're a bit more adventurous, the site has a page of "add-ons under development".  These add-ons are currently being worked on and may or may not be completely polished, but may have new functionality you haven't seen elsewhere, and if you are interested, your feedback can help the developer of the add-on to iron out any kinks: https://addons.nvda-project.org/dev.en.html

Regards

Quentin.

Hello all

I echo those sentiments. I also read a lot of linguistics-related material, but I am also in the process of creating a new translation table for LibLouis for my language and this add-on is absolutely invaluable for reading Unicode braille characters. I don't know how I would have managed it without the add-on. A million thanks for it and also to the author of the Unicode braille input add-on which is a miracle.

Kind regards

Christo,


Would you please contact me off list? I'd like to learn how to creat LibLouis tables, so that additional languages can see the light of NVDA. My skype and my twitter are the same. BlindBirder.
