Get the Most Out of BrailleBlaster™
Maybe you’re already familiar with BrailleBlaster – APH’s revolutionary and free braille transcription software designed to help transcribers provide students who are blind with braille textbooks on the first day of class. Maybe you know about BrailleBlaster, but aren’t familiar with all the ins and outs of the software. Or, maybe BrailleBlaster is completely new to you.
BrailleBlaster is easy to use, and with it, you’ll have time to get that 1000-page textbook completed before the start of the semester. You’ll have time to get that test produced in Nemeth and UEB Math. You’ll have time to write that letter to your dear braille-reading friend who always appreciates when you send letters to her the old-fashioned way.
Here are some of BrailleBlaster’s features:
- translate braille accurately in UEB or EBAE
- format braille
- automate line numbered poetry and prose
- split books into volumes
- add transcriber notes
- describe images
- automate braille table of contents, glossaries, preliminary pages and special symbols pages
- automate a variety of table styles
- translate and edit single line math
- so much more!
