Unable to see accents in Ancient Greek texts?
Hi,

I've been using Eloquent for English bible usage and it is fantastic. I have also started learning Koine Greek, but I'm having trouble seeing accents on any of the Greek texts I have downloaded through the module installer.

I have installed two unicode fonts that work with ProVoc (language learning aid), and have set those in preferences. Is it just that there are no texts with accents? A much older thread from 2009 seems to indicate that MorphGNT and Tisch have accents, but I have tried those too.

I can see accents in other places, when I type Greek.
Any advice? Some setting I've missed?

Thanks in advance!

Hi.

I've just checked the "Tisch" new testament.
There the "mod option" Show greek accents" is enabled, meaning that the module supports greek accents.

Ah, there it is. I had not looked in Mod Options. Now I know. Thanks a lot!

Re: Unable to see accents in Ancient Greek texts?
Hello!

I am having the same issue, and I also cannot figure out how to access the beta repository and download Tisch or MorphGNT. In my version of Tisch the option for Greek accents is greyed out. I am also looking to find a Hebrew module with voweling. I am running Eloquent 2.3.5 on a Mac OS X 10.5.8.

Thank you!
