(This is pretty much identical to my comment on #1266.)

It seems this ticket was overlooked. Sorry.

I've only looked at the code briefly so far. A few points:

  • Where did you obtain !SyncBraille.dll? Are you certain it is legal for us to distribute this with NVDA?
  • Are you willing to update this driver soon and maintain it into the future?
  • In order to get this included into NVDA now, it needs to be updated to use the new input gesture framework. That is, all keys must be recognised and converted to input gestures. This way, a user can provide their own key bindings if desired.

Gianluca told me that the drivers are quite ready, but unfortunately we have'nt a SyncBraille to test them, so we don't know if they work or not...

Here is a stable SyncBraille Driver.
We put the source code, the dll that should be in program files\NVDA\brailleDisplayDrivers with the other dll, and some lines of documentation in t2t format.
Since each family of Display Braille starts with the "++" symbol in the user Guide, I think that the syncbraille should have a deeper chapter because there is also the other driver that covers all other display braille.
Anyway, check it.
I tested the code with a SyncBraille and all worked well.

Merged in ea9cd6f including several changes by me. If you're interested in the changes, please take a look at the merged revisions. Thanks for your great work.

I'm closing as fixed, but please test to make sure none of my changes broke anything. Please reopen if I broke something.
State: closed

In Braille Settings Dialog, SincBraille was placed after No braille.
I think it is not logical.

Comment 7 by jteh on 2012-06-07 12:29
It's alphabetical order of driver name; syncBraille sorts after noBraille. If it bothers you a lot, please file a separate ticket, as this isn't specific to syncBraille. Thanks.
