We haven't done specific work with Chinese braille. For GNOME 2.22,
however, we are shooting to integrate liblouis.
Coscell, are you doing any work with liblouis? In addition, do you have
any insight on how we can better support Chinese braille? For example,
is liblouis something that can help? Is there something else that's
already available that works?
Does it support Chinese braille now?

FYI...Orca v2.21.4 is now out!
I just need to repeat how amazed I am at how much work we got done this
release. The last release was only 2 weeks ago, yet we accomplished a lot in
the areas of performance, bugs, magnification, and Firefox. It's difficult
for me to choose any one of these as being the highlight of this release:
o The performance work done by Eitan Isaacson has helped bring Orca's
speed back to the pre-pyatspi days, and I think we've even exceeded
the performance in spots. If you have specific hot spots, please
let us know and be very specific about where they occur. We can't
magically solve applications that are generally slow (e.g., using
Nautilus to open a folder that has 1000+ entries), but I'm sure
there is still room to make Orca faster.
o The ARIA work done by Scott Haeger is helping to make emerging web
technology accessible *before* it gets too popular. This proactive
work is awesome.
o The magnification enhancements done by Joanmarie Diggs and Rich
Burridge have really helped make Orca's control of the magnifier a
much richer experience for users. There are some really good
practical enhancements made to magnification this release -- many
of them spurred on by members of this list. Thanks so much for
your feedback. Keep it coming.
o We also continued to work on quality and bugs. We're not going to
lose focus on that for GNOME 2.22 -- we're going to keep pounding
away at these things one at a time.
In any case, give Orca v2.21.4 a shot if you can and please send feedback.
Your voices were heard loud and clear on this release and I thank you for
