unicode for audacity-win-2.0.5 and portaudio-19 Thanks!


I am using Audacity-win-2.0.5 now, one of my microphones is from China and its device name has 2 Chinese characters(unicode), and in the GUI of the Audacity it shows “??” for those 2 Chinese characters, but I still can control this microphone.

I continue to test the source code of portaudio-19 inside the source code of Audacity-win-2.0.5, I found “Pa_GetDeviceInfo” returns “PaDeviceInfo”, which includes “const char *name”, which seems not handle unicode well if the microphone device name inclused unicode charactwers.

my question is: is any unicode patch for portaudio-19 or Audaocity? or do you any workaround to handle unicode in device name? I am trying to modify portaudio-19 to include a unicode device name but until now I still cannot do it because I still didn’t understand portaudio-19’s source code well, so caould you help me find a solution or workaround for this? Thanks!
