Thread: New symbols within CW parameters

Back to the Forum

How can I incorporate new symbols within my cw parameters to be learned? So how to incorporate e.g. the swedish letter (HTML entity å) Å = .--.- in my parameters?

Put a combination between sharp arrow left (smaller than) and sharp arrow right (larger than)hence Å = .--.- is [wa]
or [ak] or [eq] or [pt] with sharp arrows instead of []

[ak] is not senseless: A mit einer Kopf.

I do not see a possibility to add new symbols within my CW parameters (Account->CW Parameter). For training sessions I can select among already defined symbols, but where and how could this set be extended? Your tweaks are highly appreciated.

Hi Karl,

what Moron describes can be used in the text2cw translator, for example. Any characters can be added together (like prosigns) by enclosing them in angle brackets: , .

For the custom character sets, the Å itself is not implemented, but there is À which is the same in CW (.--.-). I can add Å as a substitute for À, so you can use it to practice.

PS: Since I moved my own development version of LCWO to a more modern system, which is fully UTF8-capable, I am slowly working towards Unicode support on this site. This will not only make it easier to support "special" characters like Å and other "extended latin" letters, but also the Cyrillic alphabet, etc..

PPS: < and > are usually filtered out by the HTML filter, but you can include them in forum posts by their HTML representations &gt; and &lt;.
