Duxbury Braille Translator - Download Ver. 12.4 (Windows)


This program makes it easy to produce Braille for textbooks, letters, ADA-compliant signs, and more. Duxbury is the industry standard for Braille translation. The program creates documents in Grade 1 and Grade 2 American Braille as well as several other foreign language formats. The easy-to-use menu works well with most speech outputs and refreshable Braille displays. The program includes the Duxbury Braille Font, which lets you print simulated Braille using most ink printers. What does software for braille do? Most people understand the basics about braille: that it provides a reading medium for blind people, using "cells" made up of raised dots in various patterns instead of the characters used in regular print. But many people do not realize that the cells-for-characters substitutions are not, typically, on a one-for-one basis. The process is especially complicated in languages such as English and French where "grade 2" braille is used, involving "contractions" that are based in part upon pronunciation. Formatting of braille pages also involves issues beyond those affecting print. DBT provides translation and formatting facilities to automate the process of conversion from regular print to braille (and vice versa), and also provides word-processing facilities for working directly in the braille as well as the print. "Fonts" are used for displaying the braille. Who uses software for braille? Our software is designed for two types--those who don't know braille and those who do. Even if all the braille you know was learned from the previous paragraph, the Duxbury Braille Translator (DBT) will allow you to create highly accurate braille for school books and teaching materials, office memos, bus schedules, personal letters, signs compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and more. Where you need to be sure of "perfection," we would certainly recommend that you also make use of proofreading (just as you would proofread print books) by a knowledgeable braillist--who may be using DBT as well. That is because DBT is just as important to professional transcribers--for swift conversion to braille from a wide variety of print sources.
