Re: Handling emoji in dictionary files

Hello Reecetoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Thanks for your response and for the very interesting reference to your line of thinking which I have just read.
I am using NVDA and there is an NVDA punctuation dictionary which contains almost all emoji doing the rounds which I have on my computers. It enables NVDA to read most if not all emoji in English. I could make a similar one for my language and it would work fine enough, but that would restrict the speaking of emoji to NVDA and other screen reader users won't have the benefit. That is why I thought of addressing the matter through an extra file, but it looks like that is not currently possible for all Unicode emoji anyway.
