    Do most music braillists use a translation program like Toccata?

    Susan,

    Thank you for your question. My apologies for not being able to reply sooner. Most music braillist do not use a translation program, opting instead for the six-key input method. In my experience, the optical reading software that accompanies the translation software package is inferior to what the human eye can detect. In the few instances that I have tried Toccata, I found that the six-key input method was a far more efficient use of my time than to go back into the braille and edit what the computer “thought” it saw on the page. It was simply faster for me to braille the piece than to scan it, translate it and then edit it.

    I hope this answers your question. Thank you for your post!
