Does anyone have tips they might like to share re: making the braille29 font behave when it's used with swell paper? I'm using adobe illustrator to create tactile graphics and the braille dots keep coming out way too light. Suggestions? Thanks Peggy
The braille 29 font is used to create tactile graphics that are embossed using the Tiger embosser. The font that is recommended for use with microcapsule paper (sometimes called swell paper), is available as a free download from the Duxbury Systems website. Look under the Products tab, then under Freeware, then under Duxbury Braille TrueType Fonts Download. The name of the font is Swell Braille. As with any other font, it can be used with various software programs, including Word, CorelDRAW, and Adobe Illustrator.
Thanks, Betty. I had gotten the (apparently, mis-) information about using braille29 for microcapsule paper from the ATPC tutorial disk...perhaps I misconstrued it? Your help is greatly appreciated! Peggy
