[nvda] Re: Bug: dead keys

True! I had never tried to type accented characters before with nvda
but I did a small test and in fact it doesn't work.
I remember a thread started about kind of the same subject some time
ago but I don't seen to recall what it leaded to. This is an important
feature to work to the next revisions cince this is a severe limiter
issue to those who need to use nvda on a every day basis and have
accented characters in their language.

Hello Tomas,
This is a known issue in version 0.5. Can you please test with trunk and
report back please? We were unable to merge this stuff into 0.5 because
this new keyboard hooking mechanism is not fully tested yet.

Thanks for your interest.

Peter
