arabic braille sense users confirm that they can't read what is being typed on their braille display.
when i asked them to change the input table to arabic, they found out that the list of input tables doesn't include arabic.
note, the output list contains arabic tables.
so what should be done?

NVDA can only currently handle computer braille input; i.e. a single braille cell maps to a single character. There is only a grade 1 Arabic table, which isn't computer braille. In order for Arabic braille input to work, an Arabic computer braille table would need to be developed, assuming there's even an Arabic computer braille code.

Hi Jamie.

I couldn't find clear and easy documentation for developing Braille tables in Liblouis. any directions you or someone else can give will be valuable to get me started on that path. P.S. Arabic grade 2 table needs to be developed too.

This documentation can be found on the Liblouis website. The section you want is How to Write Translation Tables.
