Sue, check out

www.nbp.org

And check out their Word Wise, and other Word books.

Might be the thing you are looking for.

Oops, I meant PC World, the computing magazine NLS chooses to give us,
not that much of it is of any use to a home user.

I notice some errors in my copies of PC Word, in hard copy occasionally.


It does not cause me a problem reading.

Did you notice where the books came from?  One possibility is that they
are the jiffy braille books produced in places like NBP and they put a
notice in the front of their books that because it's jiffy braille there
may be some errors.  Just as a possibility anyway.

Hi Pam,

I have been noticing that for quite sometime with Web Braille books.
And for NLS you are supposed to pass a test to be a proofreader!!!

I don't know if this is unusual, or if I'm just more tuned into this
type of thing now and didn't notice before. But I found some definite
scanning errors in a book I was reading from web braille. Did you bum
that, instead of did you burn that? And dean laundry, instead of clean
laundry. Definite scanner errors. I don't know how I thought NLS books
were produced but I didn't really think the originals were scanned.
