The website is only setup to accept individual subscriptions to our services but you can always contact us to discuss a group rate for groups of 5 or more users.
Yes. You can upgrade your membership at any time. Since this is an annual subscription you will need to contact us to get your prorated amount for the remainder of the current membership.
No. Although the system was designed to allow you to print braille worksheets in real time we know that the cost for an embosser is not something that everyone can afford. So as a member we are offering to print your worksheets for a reduced rate plus the cost of shipping. This will allow you to receive these services without having to purchase your own embosser.
Yes. The beauty of this system is that as long as you have an internet connection you can log on to your account and emboss the pages. Remember that your account is for your use only so you will have to log on to allow the person embossing your materials to pull up the pages.
Yes. You will need to have a braille software program that can open .abt, .acn, .brf, and .dxb files. In addition, you will need to have a PDF reader installed on your computer to be able to print the print version of the worksheet if you desire to do so.
The graphic pages are in word document format so that the greatest amount of people could use them. We will be converting them over for use in Corel Draw as soon as possible.
There are a few hundred worksheets in our database at this time but we are working dilegently to convert as many files over to braille as soon as possible. We will continuously improve our system by adding worksheets and graphic pages to the database to ensure that you are receiving the best possible product for your money.
Yes. We are always looking for non-copyrighted materials to convert to braille. Please remember that any pages that you submit to us will be posted to our site for everyone to use and no compensation will be paid to you for the use of your materials.
Our braille pages are formated for 11 1/2 X 11 braille paper using 40 cells per line with 25 lines per page. If you have an embosser that doesn't support these paper settings or your embosser is not setup for these settings you will not get an exact replication of the braille page.
We are allowing you to download the braille file to your computer so that you can control the output environment. By doing this we not only allow you to change the page setup but you can also edit the file if some of the material doesn't meet your needs.
We believe that you will find this service to be invaluable and hope that you will become a member. If you have any other questions about any of our services please contact us.
