Duxbury Braille Translator

DBT is simple to use--beginners learn in just minutes. Yet its depth, power and accuracy are such that it is used by most of the major braille production centers throughout the world. Customers who have a license for the GOODFEEL Braille Music Translator from Dancing Dots can also insert references to Lime music notation files into your Duxbury print document and produce a unified braille master containing both literary and music braille. The current version (11.2) provides the following:
  • DBT has always been at the forefront in implementing Unified English Braille. 11.2 contains further enhancements. DBT now has a UEB Learning Series for the UK (these are a series of translators that allow learning of contractions in graduated steps).
  • You can now use variable width fonts on the "print side" of DBT. For many languages, this is a substantial improvement.
  • Easier support for the new BANA 2011 Formats (used in the United States)
  • New SWIFT 4.0 gives greater power and flexibility from Microsoft Word (SWIFT 4.0 will be released shortly.)
  • Nemeth Code, Braille to Print support added. (see below)
  • Export from DBT to Microsoft Word via HTML.
  • DBT now contains a Czech and a Chinese User Interface (see Global Menu, Internationalization).
  • Formatted Braille Files with non-US encodings can now be imported by DBT (requires *.bff extension and the use of another encoding in the Global, Internationalization Menu).
  • Smart Phone Integration with DBT.
  • More languages and better support of existing languages.
