Thanks for the patch. Two comments:
1. There is quite a lot of incorrect indentation in this patch, including changes to indentation of existing lines; e.g. no tab at start of lines or extra tabs/spaces at the start of lines. Note that you can catch these simple errors if you review the actual patch yourself before submitting. If nothing else, it allows you to make sure you're only touching lines you intended to touch. I certainly find this useful myself.
2. You've marked all of these tables as supporting input. As documented in the NVDA User Guide, NVDA can only handle computer braille input at present; i.e. one to one mapping between braille cells and characters. Given that these tables are marked as grade 1, I'm guessing they aren't a one to one mapping. Are you certain these work with computer braille input? If they haven't been tested in this way, I suggest you set this to False for all of these tables for now.

Removed input option for the files added.

We will work on testing these files for input, but untill then we want these files to be available in the next build.

Please get the changes from the branch in_t4778. I think my pathch was not correct.

I'm not willing to merge this into next until input has received some initial testing. Next is fine for catching bugs, but we generally avoid merging into next before more obvious issues have been tested. I'm happy to provide you with a link to a try build for distribution to your specific testers, though.

Ug. My apologies; I misunderstood your comment and now realise you meant you'd removed the input option from your current branch. I'll review this as soon as I can and get it merged into next. Thanks.

The spacing in this patch was still very messed up. All of the newly added translator comment lines had incorrect spacing, but they were inconsistent. I fixed this myself for this one (since I don't want to go backwards and forwards checking it), but please review your diffs in future to check for this. You may need to check your indentation settings; it looks like your editor might be trying to use spaces instead of tabs. You might also find it helpful to enable NVDA's indentation reporting if you haven't already.

Does this also resolve #2738? (I'm investigating open bugs for the Braille component to possibly contribute in this area, which is why I noticed.)

Hi, though not a braille user myself, I have prepared the conversion table of Nepali and send to MHameed. Since two or three entries differ in Indian and Nepali conversion; I do not know what Mr. Dinesh has done.
