I've made an extensive search and found a very similar system, also made by 'Tegic' for HTC Vox smartphone. It's downloadable from the Modaco forum and I did it. Looking inside the cab file I saw that the system it creates, including the reg settings, is like the one we already have in the new ROMs. It's very similar but certainly cannot be identical, because smartphones don't have virtual keyboard.

So, my idea would be to use the proper files and the required additional reg settings from the Vox cab and create cabs for each language it has. The Vox cab supports:

Turkish
Spanish
Slovak
Romanian
Portuguese
Polish
Italian
Hungarian
Greek
German
French
English
Dutch
Czech

All together 14 languages and each is supported by predictive dictionary too!

I think it's worth to try to make use of it! But I'm not a developer... So I make an appeal to our admired forum-mates, mainly Tom and Meschle, who successfuly integrated the Touch keyboard into their roms, to make an effort and create CABs for the additional languages if possible. You would make a lot of people happy - first of all: me :))

I tried but cannot upload the Vox cab file from my computer in my work, sorry. The link:

http://www.modaco.com/content/HTC-Vo...k/#entry853734

Disclaimer:

If I thought wrong and the two systems cannot be harmonised -- please, forgive me!

Thanks in advance all efforts - be successful or not.

cheers,
Hey ctibor - i am busy releasing roms at the mo

can someone unpack these cabs - xt9 needs kdb and lbd files in the language just for starters and also png files - but those could be made

Yes, the problem is that the Xt9 system of Vox and Excalibur stores the different dictionaries in .dll files, while the PPC WM6 Xt9 uses .ldb files.

I've tried to hack the system, extracting the Hungarian dll from the Vox cab, copying it to Windows, simply renaming it to ldb and adding Hungarian values to the registry but without any success. :(

Someone with more knowlegde and experience is needed, since I still believe that it's somehow possible!

I have a good news and a bad one.

The good news is that someone extracted the Touch keyboard's Xt9 files for 14 languages from a new rom!

Download link:
http://rapidshare.com/files/68813010...Board.rar.html

So, sooner or later we will have it in cab file, I'm sure. (The best would be to create different CABs: English + one more language.)

The bad news is that some smaller European languages are NOT SUPPORTED, e.g. Danish, and - unfortunately - Hungarian. :((

I tried to send an e-mail to Tegic's website but it leads to http://www.nuance.com/t9/xt9/
and it's practically impossible to reach the developer by e-mail... (you can check it if you want)

So my last hope it that the Smartphone system can somehow be 'ported' to our Artemises with the help of a real developer, member of our community.

Good Work Ctibor! Unfortunately for you and others who's language is not included... but really nice for the others (i would love to see a dutch cab)

But as far as i understand these are oem files, therefore they can be used in creating a rom?!

Who could help us out and make a cab for standalone instalation?

thanks in advance,

Gijs
