I've just got myself and X10. Which is great. But, randomly the language settings seem to have changed to Korean! I've checked under the settings and they are still set as locale UK and language English but the keyboard is Korean.
My HTC Wildfire does not support Arabic and Hindi Unicode characters, however it supports Chinese. Arabic and Hindi characters are displayed as boxes. I have written an application that uses Google's translation service.
I am developing an Android App which communicated with a server. User can select a language of his choice at startup or during the App execution lifetime. After selecting the language, the corresponding XML file is downloaded from server according to language which will map the "Values" of Application strings according to that language. Can I do something like replacing the default Strings.xml which contains English names(Say by default) to the language selected by user. Better will be adding an XML file per language and referring it runtime directly.
If I run my android application with a HTC magic with locale English, I find my application running properly and if I try to run it on Motorola droid with locale Korean, My application(apk) is not even installing on the device. Does android support different language? Is it is because of different language OS versions?
Can someone tell me if there is way to write an SQL query to get list of contact names from phonebook which matches its english name given that the phone language is set to Spanish.If I write a query to get a contacts whose last name ends with "Dad", but for some contacts the last name "Dad" will be stored as "papá" in Spanish.So the query where I write to match for lastname="dad" will not work as they are different characters. Is there a way in SQL which takes care of language translation as well while quering?
Passing the following SSML (Speech Synthesis Markup Language) document to the com.svox.pico TextToSpeech engine resulted in a reading of the XML body but no control from the phoneme element or the emphasis element. This result (no apparent SSML control) is the same on a Nexus One running Android 2.2 as well as on the emulator running an AVD with SDK level 8. String text = "<?xml version="1.0"?>" + "<speak version="1.0" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2001/10/synthesis" " + "xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" " + "xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.w3.org/2001/10/synthesis " + "http://www.w3.org/TR/speech-synthesis/synthesis.xsd" " + "xml:lang="en-US">" + "tomato " + "<phoneme alphabet="ipa" ph="təmei̥ɾou̥"> tomato </phoneme> " + "That is a big car! " + "That <emphasis> is </emphasis> a big car! " + "That is a <emphasis> big </emphasis> car! " + "That is a huge bank account! " + "That <emphasis level="strong"> is </emphasis> a huge bank account! " + "That is a <emphasis level="strong"> huge </emphasis> bank account!" + "</speak>"; mTts.speak(text, TextToSpeech.QUEUE_ADD, null); Does any Android TTS engine support any of the SSML elements?
I just got my HTC Desire with Android 2.1, and the first problem I'm running into a lot is when using the visual keyboard. Being multilingual and having friends who only speak one particular language, there's no single 'correct' input language setting for the word prediction feature, so I started looking into how much work it might be to extend the keyboard with two rather basic, though essential, features:
1) Showing the current language selection, so that I don't have to type stuff, getting it mis-corrected, then discover the language setting must be wrong, go into the settings, select to change language, select language, etc. until I get back, erase the old text and start over. That gets old real quick.
2) Being able to simple change whatever language is used for the word prediction by just having a button on the keyboard doing that directly, i.e. a button that just cycles through the 'relevant' languages with the key label showing which is currently active. Improving it even further, one might imagine:
3) Having a per contact setting, noting the word-prediction language that should be used when communicating with that user. But searching through the docs, I'm slowly coming to the realization that the input text language setting may not even be available to be changed outside the system settings dialog, making this impossible to implement - is that correct?
Does anyone know how to get Unicode characters to work in an android app. e.g Unicode U+00C1 HTML
I currently get these characters by holding down AltGr key on my PC keyboard and hitting the appropriate letter. (my Language is set to UK). I have used these characters in a custom Android App but when I call the application the characters appear as a Square with question mark in the middle?
I can add words to my dictionary in Android by holding down the letters required and adding them to my Android Dictionary. but when the same words are called from my custom App they appear as a Square with question mark in the middle?
I have Greek and German songs that I would like to play on the resident music application, but it really annoys me that the song names don't show properly. Instead I get a bunch of question marks. Any idea for a workaround?
I'm new here and I know you probably don't know anything about the Arabic Language Support, but I thought I might ask the experts. I downloaded something called "Arabic Android" and after flashing it, the Hero hanged in the boot screen and I had to spend over 3 hours to get back as no re-flashing or Nandroid restoring worked. Anyway, if there is a trusted way to add the Ararbic support, I would be more than grateful to have it as many of my friends send me Arabic SMS, emails, tweets and Facebook messages.
I have a few Greek songs that I would like to play on the Galaxy, but it really annoys me that the Greek song names don't show properly. Instead I get a bunch of question marks. The strange thing is that it reads one of the tags, but none of the rest.
All arab users have a huge problem represented by the lack of arabic language in the phone and the SE help center advises us to use Third-Party application that supports arabic language. Is there any intention to support arabic language in the xperia x10 in the coming update or any time in the near or far future?
I tried everything to add arabic support to a Galaxy Ace Plus GT-S7500, note that arabic works and the letters are arranged in the correct order, they are just not connected.
What i tried, 1) replace the font, the font changed but still the same problem
2) attempt to replace framework folder of an arabic supported stock , an Egyptian Version, it should have arabic support, using the same method as installing a custom rom, using a CWM and a zip with a script to extract those files to the correct location, but i got bootloops.
3) I tried to replace the entire system folder with system folder of the Egyptian Stock ROM, same problem, bootloops.
4) Finally i tried to replace system.img.ext4 from stock firmware with the Egyptian system.img.ext4 and install it through odin3, but it would complete.
And now im out of options, unfortunately this phone has no dedicated forum i could find nor many custom roms, not that i want them as this isn't my phone and i'd like to keep it the same as it as.
I want to work on supporting my language, specially the writing on android. We use Arabic characters with little modification ( like parsi, urdu etc). I was hoping android has fully supported Arabic, then I would make changes to work with my language. but even 2.2 doesn't support Arabic. It just show Arabic characters and it is not connected.
Some individuals have made Arabic support on CyanogenMod ROM's for some HTC phones, but they would not tell how they made it. I've got the android source code, I want to know where to start, where to make changes , what is the library that handle fonts, shaping engine etc. Ps: Android.com and other android related google groups are blocked in my country.
