Farsi Grade 1 (ar-fa.utb) is deprecated and should be removed from NVDA list of tables.
I Provided a new table for Grade 1 instead. I called it "Persian Grade 1". The table's filename is "fa-ir-g1.utb".
I also provided an 8-dot computer braille table for Persian for the first time; called "Persian 8-dot computer braille". The table filename is "fa-ir-comp8.ctb".
Of course, both of these tables are uncontracted.

See also liblouis/liblouis#208.

Two questions:

  1. Are these tables complete and ready for inclusion in NVDA, or do you need to test them further as suggested in #6733?
  2. Do these tables implement an official braille standard or code? Is there consensus that the old table (ar-fa.utb) should be removed? Could you provide a brief summary of what you changed/improved?

I downloaded the Next_14168 and saw the mentioned tables. Thanks all of you NV Access! I hope Persian users could benefit from these new tables. Let me close this issue. Again, Thanks and
VIVA NVDA!
