Hi Jan:

As a kind of rather independant "braille "theorist, I have been long
interested in how these incremental sets of contractions work, in developing
reading or educational materials. As a product of the residential schools of
the 1960s, I learned grade two, and could read it reasonably well, by the
time I reached grade two, I have no memory of how I was taught braille. One
of the reasons this process captivates me, is that French contracted braille
is in real danger, some flavours of it have as many as 1600 contractions.
Yet, in spite of very pertinent critiques, As an adult learner, its
ingenious logic, to a young linguistics major, meant that I learned it in
the course of a summer, living in Youth hostels of the nineteen seventies.
If APH is producing materials, using what used to be called weepy Dots, I'd
be very interested in seeing some applications of the principles, if they
exist in a soft "E-braille" file format, and if this would not be impeded by
copyright.

Thanks

Jack

something wrong in the beta version.  And can this chose have its own menu
on the toolbar?
