Hi Christine, I suspect the program you have is "Cipher", (Note the spelling) produced by Dolphin Systems. They should be able to advise you if the version you have will work on Windows XP. However knowing the Porta-Thiel extremely well, I'm almost 99% certain the problems you are experiencing are down the Cipher itself.

Hi I have just recently aquired an 8 year-old Portafiel embosser and Siffer. My embosser brailles ok but: Problem: There are no paragraphs showing in my braille, either indentation or line space would be fine. Every so often I find the word par amongst my braill for no reason. Dots 5 and 6 appear in front of what might be thought as capital letters. There is No letter sign in my postal code. I don't see a braille numeral sign in front of my numbers. My braille runs out on the right hand side. Now I seem to be having problems making the embosser work and it just says "Embossing complete" when I haven't got anything from it. This is another attempt to emboss the same piece and the dots are already on screen, should I cancel it? If so How? I have sighted help on hand but Alas we cannot solve these Many problems, anyone know what I am doing wrong? I am using jaws 6.0 and xp home. Siffer is windows 95 could this be a possible cause? Am I right in thinking jaws has its own programm I can use instead of Siffer? Thanks for Any help you can offer, frustrated, Christine W.
