I hope, there would be, not only just a few lines of reaction but, HUNDREDS of ENTHUSIASTIC ANALYTICAL COMMENTARIES for the benefit of Africa and Africans. The task of building an Amharic typewriter out of an English typewriter was not simple. “I am proud of that struggle and I consider it to be my biggest contribution. Nowhere in his interview with Tadias or VOA has he mentioned Dr. Molla’s name and acknowledged his monumental contributions including stopping his group from excluding language alphabets such as Guragie in 1993 from Unicode. If you want high quality translation, then our English to Ethiopian Translator and Ethiopian to English Translator is highly skilled. Copyright © 2020 The Habesha | EthioPoint - Latest Ethiopian News and point of view 24/7. Let me be very clear and blatant. Other keys were arbitrarily assigned to other characters such that the major criterion was whether or not a character could be created out of different smaller pieces or were to be assigned a single key. He knew then and now that Dr. Molla’s Ethiopic writing system was and continued to be the most powerful, scientific and user-friendly. እስካሁን ቻልንህ አሁን ግን ጥላቻህ ወይም አለማወቅ በዝቶ ይሄን ያህል ኢትዮጵያዊ ምሁራኖችን እየተከታተልክ አርባ ክንድ ምላስህን ማሾል አቁም :: በቃ ሰው በለጠኝ ብለህ አትመቀኝ ከቻልክ ሁላችሁም አብራችሁ በፍቅር ስሩ ካልሆነ ግን ስድብ ምን ይባላል :: ይሄን ግን መታገስ አልቻልኩም :: Actually Fesseha Atlaw is no better than the fake Engineer Dr. Solomon ZeMichael. And according to Dr. Aberra Molla Ethiopic is It the only African writing system that definitely met all these requirements. (Gojam, Gonder, Wollo, and Menz dialects). Suffice it to say, Dr. Aberra Molla is a scientist who substantiates his inventions related to computerizing Geez writing system with several US patents. When it comes to Ethiopians especially in Diaspora like you the problem are not Europeans but it is Ethiopians. Obviously, civil conversation ensued and I showed the person a book that I was holding, adding these words: “THIS IS WRITTEN IN OUR LANGUAGE”. Case closed. Collaborating with Joe Becker from Xerox I pushed for “Ethiopic” to be the unicode name in the Unicode list of languages,” Fesseha emphasizes. ModEth stands for modern Ethiopia since it includes the Ge’ez characters of the Amharic, Tigre, Oromo and Gurage alphabets. Most of the people do not know that Ethiopians had developed beautiful and perfect alphabets and have been using them for thousands of years. The DC Council unanimously approved the Act (B15-0139). Speak the word and listen its translation! The lack of basic communication skills, especially among many individuals who come to the United States on Diversity Visas (DV) has a traumatic impact because of its influence on opportunities for communal life, education, employment and access to government services. Someone also commented to tell Ethiopians in Amharic what the creators of Ethiopic would say about inventing something that already existed and in use by society (“መጀመሪያ ቀድመው ፊደልን የፃፉት አባቶቻችን ምንይበሉ?”). Adobe alone has many thousand English typefaces and the computer technology we have now developed for the Ethiopian languages may come handy for others. His characters were displaced fake parts of alphabets assembled at the time of typing to look like alphabets. Ethiopic is a unique ancient phonetic alphabet that can be used efficiently for various African languages. However some typing mechanisms/schemes are patentable. The purpose of the two keystrokes is to pull up the character from the computer memory; not to connect two pieces of a character. None of the materials Fesseha contributed made a difference to Ethiopic other than being a nuisance. I have also come across a number of documents printed using computers which I could not associate with any of the programs I have heard of. What is that something that has already existed? Did you patent the software? It is our policy to keep the confidentiality of our customers which include the various Ethiopian political organizations, churches, universities and individuals who are using it for writing Amharic, other Ethiopian languages, and English documents, and for publishing books. However, it is mind boggling why this guy decided to falsely claim his work as ETHIOPIC and try to openly deceive the public. Because he is a sore loser he started a false campaign by changing the name of his Amharic typewriter product to Ethiopic word Processor. ዶክተር ኣበራ ሞላ ኮምፕዩተራይዝ የኣደረጉትና ለዩኒኮድ ከለገሱት የሞዴት 480 የግዕዝ ቀለሞች በከፊል። An example page of the 480 Ethiopic glyphs in ModEth computerized by Dr. Aberra Molla for the first time that was also presented to Unicode around 1989. LOL, HAHAHA. I am lucky enough to have travelled and met all kinds of people. Thus the primary and most of the other orders or characters such as those which create the “R” sound were given numerous separate standard or shifted key spots while some of the primary characters had no keys of their own. Anybody who had used the Amharic typewriter very well knows how cumbersome its characters looked and how difficult typing them were as these fragments were superimposed over each other. 2. Especially Ethiopic/Geéz which has been in use for at least 4,000 years. Engineer ZeMichael did). Fesseha tells tall stories about how in the 1970’s the Oromos were concerned about computers, in the 1980’s the English used 8 by 8 grids, the number of Ethiopic alphabets was 270, he made almost the entire alphabet using vowel marks and how he worked with companies like Google and Facebook which did not exist at that time. “ …..የኦሮሞ ምሁራን የግዕዝ ፊደላትን እንዲጠቀሙ ጥሪ አቀርባለሁ….” What is your opinion on the Afaan Oromo writing system using Latin? Thus, It behooves the government to provide services in these and other services, in the native language of the tax paying resident. Take the example of BLACK —WHITE RELATIONSHIP in the so-called most-liberated, free, and democratic country around the Globe :USA. So, the bottom line is he wants recognition for computerizing Ethiopic without computerizing it. According to Fesseha, “The most important development in the history of Ethiopic software came in the late 1980s and early 1990s when Voice of America (VOA) International Service gave Xerox a contract to develop multilingual computers and one of the languages they requested was Amharic.” If Fesseha has created something for Amharic, why was it necessary for VOA to ask XEROX?
