NVDA 2017.3 does not show capital characters when using the 8 dot contracted braille table.
This was the case until 2017.3 where the input table was added.

Here is how to reproduce

  1. Select the Danish 8 dot contracted table under options, braille options.
  2. Open Notepad and type:
    Hello World
    Now make a newline and type:
    NVDA
    Remember to type all characters as capitals when typing NVDA.
  3. On the braille display it shows:
    hello world!
    n v d a

So:
When a word contains of multiple capital letters the dot 7 is not used, instead there is inserted a space, and when words start with a capital letter this is not shown.

  1. Now try retype the examples above but switch to the Danish uncontracted braille table.
    You will now find that capital characters works again just fine.

Tested on Windows 7 with a Braille Sense U2 from HIMS.

I don't speak Danish, but @BueVest does. :)

Dot 7 works with English 8-dot Computer Braille. But, as tbdalgaard mentions, not with Danish 8-dot Grade 2 / Contracted Braille. Tested on Windows10, 64 bit, NVDA Next 14342.

Now that I'm actually paying attention, I realize I missed the obvious cause. This is another case where passing the pass1Only flag to liblouis seriously messes up braille tables. See #7301.

@BueVest: Do I understand you correctly that you belief this is caused by pass1only (so multi pass being disabled)?
