In KHangMan code I use Regular Expressions to filter input so it cannot be 
possible to enter numbers for example.
I think this prevents Right-to-Left languages input, I am not totally sure 
where the problem is but the line
QRegExp regExp("[A-Za-
in khangmanview.cpp is what I use.
Maybe it's a bad idea to try to filter the user input (I am open to any 
suggestions). Maybe the above line just misses something. I don't know more at 
that point and I would need to refine this (by making tests probably).
I'll follow this tomorrow, I just came back after a week-end away!



PS: we need to test all KDE-Edu apps in RTL languages and write down problems!
