Add the Mac command key unicode character to symbols.dic. #8366
Link to issue number:
Summary of the issue:
The Mac command key has its own unicode symbol. Some documentation, such as for Google Docs mentions both Windows and Mac shortcuts, but for the Mac shortcut uses the Mac command key symbol rather than spelling out command key. With most synthesizers, currently NVDA does not announce anything.
Description of how this pull request fixes the issue:
This PR adds the Mac Command key symbol u+2318 to symbols.dic.
Read the following with NVDA: "Press Windows + l or ⌘ + space to launch the rocket!".
Known issues with pull request:
Technically, The unicode standard refers to this symbol as "place of interest". However, it seems that the symbol is now very widely known as the Mac command key.
