Many transcribers are already working with NIMAS files. Mega Dots and Duxbury already deal with NIMAS; perhaps now and then there are a few "bugs". I am not sure where Braille 2000's version stands right now. So it is important to have software that can deal with NIMAS files. It is also important to know how to use the software in conjuction with the NIMAS files. I haven't yet gone to the AFB website but that might be a good place to start. Then look for braille conferences that have workshops on NIMAS. Also contact the manufacturers and see what they have available. There are books now that have NIMAS files now and there will be more every year.
