    Good morning Jana,

    Here is a response from an experienced, sighted Duxbury user:

    While I have no experience using JAWS, I think I might have found something useful in Duxbury's help files. I found a section on JAWS Scripts that includes several hot keys that will be of use to a JAWS user. In this case, Alt + 9 should speak the current cursor location, giving the page, line, and column. Here is the link to an online version of the in-program article (it must be noted that this documentation is for 12.5 and appears to match what I found in my 12.2): https://www.duxburysystems.com/documentation/dbt12.5/welcome_to_DBT/JAWS_Scripts.htm. Hopefully, this will help the user.

    Additionally, here are two more links for Duxbury questions.

    Good morning Margaret,

    The engineers of Braille Blaster ask the following questions: What version of BrailleBlaster is it? What specific formatting are they concerned with? Is it blank lines, a particular style, or is it braille characters?

    Also, you can send Braille Blaster questions directly to their customer service queue. cs@aph.org.

    Thank  you for such a well-formed and informative reply. I have an exam teaching Russian thus calling for Method 3. Thank you for your time and expertise.

    I appreciate your quick and helpful replies.
    Shame on me if I come to you and the other experts if I have not attempted my own research.

    Grateful,
    Randy

    Thank you.
    May I further ask:
    Is this same reasoning used when displayed material begins a braille page and there is text on line 25 of the previous page?
    I am very unclear on the use of blank lines and braille page transitions.

    I would follow section 3.5 and keep the address all on the same page. Even though it is talking about programs, the Section on Format (3.0) does not seem to differentiate between a program and an address in its discussion.

    in reply to: Vertical line within a matrix #22134

    456 has been specified as a vertical line (in division arrangements). I would use that line for the augmented matrix. If there is a question of space, the line may be spurred.

    Yes. The alignment shown in print should be retained in braille. What you are calling ununified systems of equations are transcribed by the same guidelines as unified systems (without the grouping signs of course)

    This is one of those situations where a rule has to be compromised. In order to maintain the structure of the fraction, sacrifice the blank line between the horizontal fraction line and the matrix. If the blank lines are inserted it would lose its meaning as a fraction. Precede and follow the entire expression with a blank line.
