Accessible Devices Request For Help In Evaluating Braille Keyboard Program

April 22, 2007 • Darrell Shandrow Hilliker
Some of you may wish to take part in this.  This is all we have about it.
 
Hi All,
I was asked to review a demonstration version of a program that turns
your QWERTY keyboard into a braille keyboard. This is similar to what you find in many braille translation programs. The difference here is that this braille keyboard works in all applications.  It lets the user enter text in contracted or uncontracted braille using a word processor, e-mail, or what ever. Since braille only uses six keys, there is some indication that it may be a faster entry method than print letters for those who are familiar with the braille code.  Please give it a try and reply to the list, to me, or to the reply section on their web site. I think you’ll find it an interesting program. You can download the demonstration version at http://www.oss-globe.com/sbk.
I, nor AFB, are endorsing this product in any way, but I am simply providing it as information.  Be sure to select Version 1.3 and read the setup instructions before installing it on your computer.
Have fun,
Ike

One opinion on “Accessible Devices Request For Help In Evaluating Braille Keyboard Program

  1. Hello

    What do you mean, you want someone to help in evaluating the program?

    I have tried this program, it is quite useful and works in any program it claims. it also allows writing in braille Grade II with little mistakes in interpretation, only when i provided some ambiguous recursive contractions that the program misinterpreted it.

    there is A new version other than the one mentioned here. this new version is V2.0 and it is the one i worked with.
