You should visit http://www.brailleauthority.org to find information on all code updates.
The only DBT tutorials are in the DBT Help menu. I could help you more if I had more information.
What version of DBT are you currently using?
Do you use the BANA Word template?
Do you use Swift?
We just upgraded to Duxbury 11.3. When you choose to create a new document, you need to choose UEB from the template list. The default template is "English (BANA Pre-UEB) - Literary Format". If you keep scrolling down the list, you'll find the options for English (UEB).
One resource we have used in our school district in the past is from TSBVI (Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired: "A Paraprofessional's Handbook for Working with Students Who Are Visually Impaired" ...
Another way to insert the long dash. I emailed DBT and got the following information.
In the DXP file place your cursor where the long dash needs to be. Then using control+] (closing bracket) you will get a screen that will allow you to insert the DUSCI code for the long dash. In that box type ec45 and then OK. Then Ctrl T to translate and you will see the UEB long dash.
DBT has added this symbol to their list for the next DBT version.
For now I would use ascii and exact translation.
What I do for plaques is this.
I do my translation and then I save it as a BRF file. I then open the BRF file into WORD and change the font to Braille or Simbraille and change the font size to 14 point so that none of the lines get skewed.
Hope this is what you are needing. If not you can message me off expert or continue this thread.
Most Dells work as well. The best way to determine on a Demo Computer in a Store is to find yourself in "any" dialogue box and using the home row keys of "fdsjkl" press them down all at once and if you see all of them then you know you are good for braille.
The template full name is English American Textbook DE BANA Nemeth. My BANA Nemeth template is directly under the one named English American Textbook DE BANA. It appears you are using the older template for textbooks prior to the incorporation of the BANA Templates. If you cannot see it in the list then perhaps you have chosen in the past to hide these templates. Choose to unhide hidden templates and see if you see it.
The user got her help from Duxbury Support. Here was the fix. I decided to post it in the event others have the same issues. Thank you for posting your question and for sharing DBT's answer to your problem.
Control-k is a shortcut to add a skipped line.
Regarding the box this is because the box is big.
Click on the document menu and click modify style.
Now after clicking ok remove the [kps] and [ki1] codes from the beginning codes and remove the [kpe] and [ki0] codes from the ending codes.
Click ok and say yes to modify the style.
If you could share the file in question in a DXP file as well as letting me know what version of DBT you are using I will take a look at the coding you are using and see if I can help. Let's do this offline. You can email me at email@example.com. Once we have it resolved I will try to add a post reply to share what we have figured out.
Sorry for the delay in posting a reply. I know of no other proofreading certifications other than the courses that NLS offers. The National Federation of the Blind is the organization that administers NLS's courses. They may be able to give you a listing of certified proofreaders in your area. Unfortunately I believe there are very few independent proofreaders.
