Editing math formulas for arabic scientific texts is far more than allowing Right-To-Left text. WIRIS editor has been developed following W3C Arabic Mathematical notation recomendations.
There is still work to be done. We will appreciate your comments and feedback.
Our Support team is ready to help you in English and Spanish at firstname.lastname@example.org .
We cannot give you support in Arabic yet.
Mirroring - RTL mode
Other mathematical expressions are mirrored to follow the Arabic notation tradition . For example, in Saudi Arabia a square root like is represented as in RTL mode.
Numbers in Arabic languages
Different region in the Arabic countries use different notation for numbers. We have implemented Arabic-Indic and Eastern Arabic-Indic numbers
Arabic characters, when written together, are typografically joined with the so called ligatures.
In mathematics, variable names are typically formed by a unique character. Hence by default ligatures are not used in WIRIS editor. We consider every character a stand alone mathematical variable.
Arabic ligatures are implemented for text boxes (the MathML mtext tag) and also when the Italic mode is not active.
Enrico and Carles from the WIRIS team met Gàbriel KABAMUANYISHI in the last Italian MoodleMoot in Livorno. As a result of sharing hotel and conference, the high school Istituto di Istruzione Superiore Antonio Badoni from Lecco, Italy, has visited the WIRIS office as part of their trip to Barcelona.
These last months, we have been working in two rather subtle, yet key aspects of technology: accessibility and performance. Read about the new features of WIRIS editor that make it the perfect tool for accessible maths contents, plus discover the new performance aspects of WIRIS quizzes.
You will find us at booth C6 during the BETT show.
With the new academic year, come the full versions of our two best-selling tools: WIRIS editor is now fully backward compatible and WIRIS quizzes includes Embedded answers (Cloze) questions and with this every type of question in Moodle 2.
You love WIRIS editor, but have the feeling that it offers too many icons to your users? Do your students need only a fraction of the powerful toolbar?
Don't worry, you can customize all the elements in the toolbar of WIRIS editor.
You can select which tabs, sections, extra sections and items you want to build, gaining thus full configurability of the tool.
