Hello Tesfaye,

I'm glad that you've found a way around this, but I'm not really satisfied
that we're doing for you what we should.

The reason I suggested to Pamela to resave a file was to avoid getting a
warning when opening the file.  But that warning only suggests that you may
drop columns or lines of braille during output, not individual dots.  I'm
very puzzled by all this.

If you do run into the problem in the future, and can supply to me the 10.4
version of the document, I'll have a try myself embossing it from 10.5.
This may shed some light on the subject.

- Peter

Hello Mark and Everyone else,  Resaving files in 10.5 seem to solve the
problem.  So far I have Embossed 10 copies of a title and they all are Ok.
I think it was Peter who suggested this to Pam Marzolini a while back.

A big thank you to Mark, Peter, David, George, Sean, Anita and Debbie for
your suggestions and input.

Cheers
Tesfaye

Hi All,

Looks like the Braillo is dropping bits.  What port is being used?  What
handshaking is being used if serial?  The example given "did" and "bab"
shows that dots 123 are being dropped.  Are all bad characters embossing the
4,5,6 dots in the 1,2,3 position?

Does DBT have a selection for hardware or software handshaking?  Is DBT
fixed for hardware handshaking or does it use Windows port settings?  I
didn't see anything in "emb.elt" for handshaking support.

Best Regards,
Mark

> Hello David and All,  I thought everything was fine with Beta 3 until We
run into Print Braille production.  Here at the CNIB, we produce a
substantial number of print Braille children books every year.  This is
Braille that is Embossed on a clear plastic sheets and collated with print.

> The problem with beta 3 is, embossed Braille on clear plastic is missing
all kind of dots all over the pages.  For example, the word "did" changes to
"bab".  Everytime we are using clear plastic sheets for embossing we get
error message that reads "printing error on Briallo 200 would you like to
cancel or retry"  I could be wrong but I have a feeling this has to do with
the plastic we use.  Mind you, we have been using the same raw material for
years for same purpose.

ideas why this is happening and any solutions.  Also is it ok for us to use
Beta 3 or 4 for production or should we stick to testing only.
