      Dear list members,

      Dolphin has released version 5.2 of Lunar, Lunarplus, Hal and Supernova.

      screen reader with speech and braille support, Supernova is the only
      product in the AT market combining Speech, braille and magnification.

      What's New in v5.20?

      Dolphin List Utility
      The List Utility allows you to bring up a list of hyperlinks, frames or
      html headings with a hot key and jump right to the item you want. Use
      the List Utility to instantly review and navigate complex web pages or
      html help files. Sort the list in alphabetical or tab order and chose to
      right or left click, or route the virtual focus for instant access to
      the information of your choice. The List Utility is a powerful
      replacement for the Links Navigator.

      Screen readers: Supernova & Hal
      Verbosity controls
      Choose how much speech feedback you want to hear by selecting minimum,
      low, medium or high verbosity. Alternatively create and save your own
      custom settings - choose whether and how an object is announced, select
      announcement before or after the focus, and create your own prompts.
      Tables
      Speech and Braille support for tables on the Internet, html help and or
      other html applications now includes navigation by row or column, and
      position information. Multiple tables or nested tables are also

      Braille Options
      Full control over Braille verbosity - choose how much information you
      want and how it is displayed. Select minimum, low, medium or high
      verbosity or create and save your own custom settings

      Choose the Braille hooks you want for each application and switch off
      those you don't!
      Console and Terminal Windows
      New support for console and terminal windows. Also includes improved
      support for instant messaging software such as MSN Messenger with 'Read
      new text' feature.

      Training mode: Highlight similar objects
      'Highlight similar objects' checkbox now includes
      a) objects with the same target

      c) similar untrained objects which use the same Detection Atlas.
      List utility operations
      Build your own list of objects or areas then use the new list utility to
      click or route the virtual focus to the item of your choice.
      'If' operation
      New 'if' parameters include:

      Add Help prompts
      Add your own control specific help or training prompt for an area in the
      Target dialog.
      Embedded Actions
      New operation to run one action inside another. Any temporary parameter
      changes within the embedded action last only for the duration of that
      action. The overall action will continue with it's own parameters.
      Right to Left
      The context "RTL System" has been added (for testing in the Target
      dialog). This context is set when the current system language is Arabic
      or Hebrew.

      The Floating focus rule now has a "Right to Left" (RTL) option to enable
      detection when they are flipped horizontally.
      Find in Virtual Focus
      A new searching scope 'Inside the current VF', for the 'Move VF To
      Marker' and 'Move VF To Area' operations is now included.
