Displaying Arabic text

An update to this Google Groups post, about how to get Psychopy to display Arabic text correctly.

Michael MacAskill suggests using an online service by Abdullah Diab which “reshapes” Arabic text. The links he gave are now broken, but the service still exists at: http://pydj.mpcabd.xyz/arabic-reshaper/.

Check that diacritics are displaying properly - the reshaper may not place them correctly to start with, but a bit of manual editing will give you working Arabic text. (Assuming your text is stored in a conditions file - I’ve not tested inputting it directly.)
