Thread: Braille Spacing

  1. #1

    Braille Spacing

    Hi Aaron,

    I have purchased your Braillescript software a few years ago and have been
    using it on and off. Its a great piece of software.

    I was wondering if you could make a few minor changes for me. I would be
    willing to pay a reasonable amount to get it working as I need.

    1) Increase the horizontal distance size between braille dots from 0.09" to 0.1"
    2) Increase the vertical distance between braille dots from 0.09" to 0.1"
    3) Increase the horizontal distance between dots of adjacent cells from 0.15" to 0.2" (or corresponding dots in adjacent cells from 0.24" to 0.3")
    4) Put the braille 0.45" below the original text
    5) Have a checkbox that would automatically convert all text to lower case or not use the upper case braille symbol

    What do you think of these enhancements?

    Sincerely,

    James K

    James,

    I think these could be good enhancements. The spacing you describe still fits within the range of ADA braille guidelines.

    Any progress on the spacing for the Left Coast? I purchased the translator a few weeks ago and see it is still at .09... Pesky Californians!

    I thought I read a work around but can't locate it....

    Bob,

    Yes, I recently spent some time incorporating the new features, and it is now available for download.
