Braille-Input-Tool : The final touch


            With this two weeks we have done many testing with users and done many additions according to their needs. The first one  is Key reassigning. as you know there are many keyboard variants also user like to set there own keys instead of using f,d,s,j,k and l. But this make the necessity of saving user preferences. So we done this using jstorage. it's working fine

Key reassigning can be done by clicking "Configure Keys" button which will popup many entry's where user can remap his keys. Restore option is also provided there.

New and Save are the basic things that should be provided by a online editor

Changing font color, font size and background color are very impotent for partially impaired blind people. For keeping the page accessible we choose combobox containing major color list instead of providing graphical color picker

Various bugfixes
