# Cannot input punctuation marks and signs that consist of two cells, although they are
# forward-translated normally. This is because the first part of the symbol represents another
# symbol in the table. For example, the colon is 5-2 cannot be written because dot 5 represents
# the Arabic comma, and this is applied to any other symbol starts with dot 5. Similarly, because
# 56 represents semi-colon, it is not possible to input math symbols like + = or *. This happens
# on NVDA, as I don't have the necessary skills to test using the liblouis built-in tools.

# A rule to correct Shadda symbol (a diacritic mark to indicate that the letter follows it should
# be doubled in pronunciation). It should be written before the character in Arabic braille
# code. This will consist of every Arabic character followed by the Shadda diacritic symbol, and a
# dot pattern of the braille Shadda followed by the character.
# I used the "noback" opcode so that I can avoid lots of input issues due to the conflict with the
# capital letter sign. This means that the user will have to input this symbol normally after the
# character as if he is writing from the standard keyboard, but it will be displayed correctly. In
# the standard Arabic braille, Shadda should be also typed before the character.

# Linguistically correct, if a character has the Shadda and another diacritic symbol on it, Shadda
# should be typed first followed by the other diacritic mark. Typing the other diacritic symbol
# before it will result in inappropriate output, as the shadda will appear as if it belongs to the
# character that follows the stressed character.

# I didn't add this rule for the characters that can never be stressed, so even if a user types
