Braille for students


We have been told to expect a registration for one of our programmes from a blind candidate. It looks like we will need braille versions of materials, and may have to accept assignments in Braille.
Does anyone know of readers/translators/software, or about braille printers etc that can be used off a pc? Or is there anyone who has had this problem who can advise?

    We do have a printer and the software here, I can find out if as a favour we could arrange that for you, let me know.

  3. Contact person
    Try contacting Eunice Smith c/o Edinburgh University Settlement, Old Royal High, Regent Road, Edinburgh.
    Her project is for translating materials to Braille using a PC and its software. She knows what you need and how to get it. She also had her equipment funded so you might want to ask about funding it.

    I have used Magray Documents extremely effectively for producing and translating braille etc etc. Ray and Maggie Dawson can be contacted on 0208 864 7208.
