MDE-LIO is now taking registrations for a Duxbury Braille Translator workshop in Flint for those who support students with visual impairments. This workshop is designed for beginners who have little or no knowledge of the Duxbury Braille Translator. Individuals who have some experience but want to brush up on their skills may also participate.
Duxbury Braille Translator software offers braille translation and editing, formatting, production, publishing, and more.
Participants will learn to:
- Understand and use basic text to braille terminology
- Configure or customize Duxbury options in the initial setup
- Create documents using various methods, such as six-key, QWERTY, Word conversion, scanning, and uploading
- Translate print documents into Unified English Braille
- Create and modify tables and charts
- Create math documents using the BANA Nemeth Template
During this course, participants will receive Duxbury Braille Translator tip sheets and other resources. You will also be added to the MDE-LIO technology listserv after completing the workshop. As a member of the listserv, you can connect with other professionals who have completed an MDE-LIO technology workshop. Use the listserv to share ideas, ask questions, or help answer someone else's question about assistive technology. MDE-LIO also shares helpful tips on a regular basis.
