Some errors in the Typing practice option of the Selected text option were fixed:
The cursor wasn't following when the selected text was bigger or out of the visible text.
THE DOWNLOAD IS AVAILABLE AGAIN. Aleph, Hei, Chet, Ayin and Reish with dageshes were eliminated.
Doubling for dagesh forte is accomplished. New characters can be stored in Hebrew fields: ~ " ! ' - and /.
Other improvements need working, but wanted to make it available again. Thanks for visiting.
Apologies for the inconvenience.
Due to changes in the Transliteration algorithm many things needed updating, finally it is done.
An internal change in the memory organization of the Games reducing from three layers of abstraction to just two took long.
This change facilitated the new Transliteration algorithm at doubling by dagesh forte in the Games section. Define transliteration is updated too.
