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.

Subject: [access-uk] Braille Embosser problems?

Hi I have just recently aquired an 8 year-old Portafiel
embosser and Siffer.  My embosser brailles ok but:
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
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, 
Christine W.
