(I'M French, sorry for my level of English)
When I typing a document, and when I do lot of space, I don't see that in my braille display. For myself, the purpose of braille display is the capacity of easy layout and imagine the made of document.

Do you mean pressing the space key repetitively? Some of the liblouis braille tables seem to compress spaces down to one space, which is not really what we want and we might have to work with the liblouis project to find a solution that works for everyone.

If this isn't what you mean, please provide exact steps to reproduce the problem.

Yes, you understand my problem. I hope this problem will be solved before the launch of NVDA 2011.1, it's big problam when you want correctly properly present a document.

See this mailing list thread. The assertion from liblouis is that "this is what almost everybody wants".

A number of LibLouis tables has been updated to expand spaces. As of April 2013, these table changes are included for LibLouis 2.5.3.

This should be fixed for most tables with the update to liblouis 2.5.3. If there are any tables that have been missed, please address this separately.
