Introduction[edit | edit source]

This is an acceptance test procedure for typing in a right-to-left language in the VisualEditor.

The basic typing test is done using Hebrew, because Hebrew characters should be easier to discern than of the other alphabets. Special features of complex RTL scripts will be checked in other tests.

Basic assumptions[edit | edit source]

  • Visual Editor is completely installed and configured (Parsoid etc.)
  • LocalSettings.php: $wgLanguageCode = "he";
  • The computer has a physical US QWERTY keyboard.
  • The computer has an English (US) keyboard enabled in software.
  • The computer has a Hebrew keyboard enabled. (TODO: Which one? Specify for Mac, Desktop Linux, Windows.)
  • The computer has a Hebrew font installed.
  • The user interface of the wiki is Hebrew (change using preferences or ULS)

N.B.: The words "right" and "left" in this document refer to sides. "Right" doesn't mean "correct" and "left" doesn't mean "not taken".
