Character Information Generator (Windows-1251 encoding)


The service Character Information Generator was created to give the user an opportunity for getting names of Windows-1251 encoding characters (standard 8-bit encoding for all Russian versions of Microsoft Windows).

Any sequence of electronic characters of the given encoding (text, single words, random sequence of characters, for example, typed on a keyboard) is fed to the input. User can specify one of the three languages (Belarusian, Russian or English) and also choose the information output settings (character names arranged in columns or comma separated). The purpose of the given service is to help the synthesizer to read texts with unknown characters.

 

Examples of the usage:

1. To define Latin character in a word

For example, we type words with one Latin character

Тaта

and immediately see, where it is:

КІРЫЛІЧНАЯ ВЯЛІКАЯ ЛІТАРА ТЭ

ЛАЦІНСКАЯ МАЛАЯ ЛІТАРА ЭЙ

КІРЫЛІЧНАЯ МАЛАЯ ЛІТАРА ТЭ

КІРЫЛІЧНАЯ МАЛАЯ ЛІТАРА А

2. To find out the formal name for a character:

We type:

@

We get:

КАМЕРЦЫЙНАЕ ЭТ

3. To find out the formal names for characters in English
