Deleting from the scan record is useful but being able to delete the files at the same time could be very helpful at times
This is a minefield. Not only are the rules for which words should be capitalised dependent on local conventions but the actual capital to be used is language/country specific - for example French French doesn't generally leave accents on when capitalising (except in some special circumstances) but Canadian French does. If you don't want to spend the rest of your life fixing bugs for pedants I suggest a few standard rules plus the ability to manually override would be sufficient. Attempting to autodetect dependent on characters present is bound to fail on short samples like song titles.
Oops, mistyped - I meant OS proscribed characters :)
It wasn't immediately clear to me that you were only taking on board the special characters (of which windows has far too many, but that is another discussion) rather than considering purging accented characters which I think was the original thrust of this request. UFT-8 has to be the way to go and other software packages should step up to it rather than damaging international support by attempting the horrible task of filtering out accented character.
Replacing special characters which cause the filesystem to glitch is one thing and is probably an unfortunate necessity due to the way Windoze works, but the OP was asking for umlauts and diacriticals to also be removed. These are not special characters to many non-English speakers, but an integral part of their language. The correct solution is to support UTF-8 and filter only OS-prescribed symbols. Most browsers and major software packages can already handle UTF-8 so the support infrastructure is already in place.
For the record, I am English and have no need for accented characters except when being anal about loan-words, but we really need to avoid the sort of linguistic imperialism which tells others that they don't need part of their alphabet.
Looking at the audio station documentation, it supports folder, Folder, FOLDER, cover, Cover, COVER, albumart, Albumart, AlbumArt, ALBUMART. Maybe the easiest would be a "Support all Audio Station options" button?Len shared this idea ·
