Version: 1.2Hesperides is an adaptation of Didier Willis' Dragon Flame, a sindarin (the grey-elven language, invented by J.R.R. Tolkien) dictionary, to Mac OS X.
Operating System: Mac OS X
So, Mac Lovers can now be lambendili too : Hesperides integrates Didier's Sindarin dictionary, distributed on his web site as a XML file, with a state-of-the-art Mac OS X interface and the Narmacil engine (to display the words using Tengwar).
Here are some key features of "Hesperides":
· Hesperides offers a "Transcribe to Tengwar" service. However, to make it work, you have to install the Tengwar fonts system-wide (they are included in Hesperides, but can be only used from within the application if you don't install them system-wide). So use Font Book to install the fonts located in the 'Fonts' directory of the disk image.
· You can add other other fonts (as long as they are TrueType) or other modes (Tengwar Scribe modes) to Hesperides, and also you can put any fonts or modes you want in your Library/Application Support/Hesperides folder, situated in your home folder.
