Jaspell Jaldi: Roman Scripts with Accents
West European languages are written in Roman script as covered by the standard ASCII
character set which is adopted as the basis for international communication. These include
many characters with various accents, diphthongs and ß.
The problem is that there are not enough keys on your keyboard to enable all the
characters to be reached just by pressing a single key.
Jaspell Jaldi lets you type,
add, change, or clear accents like in àáâãäåæçðñ and different characters like
(a) Within 1-9 seconds (you set how long) of typing a character you can add the accent by
typing a single number.
For example, one of the methods gives a1=à; a2=ä; a3=á; A3=Á; d3=ð, and so on.
(b) For German, you can choose automatic conversion to ä, ö, or ü, when you
type ae, oe, ue. You can set sz so as to give ß.
(c) No guide is needed for such a simple system. It is easy to
make a note that the Ctrl key with 0 to 9 give the accent or other modified forms as in
exemplified in:- clear (a), à, ä, á, æ(ß), ç, â, ø, å, ã, respectively. However,
from Menu "Mode" you can choose to display a panel showing which suffixed number
produces which accent.
(d) Our various procedures and fonts enable Afrikaans,
Albanian, Basque, Catalan, Chinese Mandarin Pinyin, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch,
English, Esperanto, Estonian, Færoese, Finnish, French, Galician, German, Greenlandic,
Hungarian, Icelandic, Irish, Italian, Lappish, Latvian, Lithuanian, Malagasy, Maltese,
Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Rumanian, Serbo-Croatian, Slovak, Slovene, Spanish,
Swedish, Turkish, Vietnamese, and Welsh.
(e) We have provided a font for West African languages like Yoruba, but we have not
created a special typing programme for it.
