Hello George and all:

Thanks for this enormous work!!! Now you are allowed to sleep (French grin).

Would you please tell me if we in France can begin to translate the file or is
it better to wait for a definitive document -- because of potential
modifications that you could insert in the present document?

Thanks for your advice.

Objet : [duxhelp] Help: Language Translation Tables

I've completed a first draft of the Language Translation Tables section
of the Help files, which should be in tomorrow's autobuild (3rd June) -
and eventually in the next Beta.

I have also generated a Word 2003 file, compiled directly from the Help
files, which you can download from the Duxbury Systems Partners Pages,
Beta Section.  It's around 500k, and is not zipped.

I have not at this point attempted to generate any braille from the Word
file, for the sole reason that it's late, and I do occasionally have to

The file is in American Letter size format (11 inches by 8.5 inches),
and contains a basic Table of Contents and an Index.  I'm hoping it will
transport to other system word-wide.

Sighted readers will note that I have included what I hope are relevant
national flags with each of the topics, as much to enhance to visual
appearance, as anything else.  Screen readers users will note that I've
also been stupid enough to forget to Alt Tag the flags in the Help
files, but I will rectify this serious omission when my batteries are

I'd very much appreciate some feedback, especially on the Word document.
Duxbury has been severely chastised on the Duxuser list over the lack of
accessible documentation, and I am attempting to rectify this with 10.5.
Hence I'm hoping your input will help mould how the rest of the
documentation is produced and presented.

At this stage, please don't ask for files in plain text, XML, HTML,
DAISY/NISO, or a left handed giggle-sprocket.  Miracles may take just a
shade longer.

If you feel your comments won't pass the list censors, please feel free
to write privately to be at george@xxxxxxxxxx

All the best,

George Bell.
