Hi George, Thanks for your time. As far as I know word is installed, as I can type a word document and directly emboss, or sent it to Duxbury, which I rarely do. I don't know about a default path though. This particular document, I tried to open from Duxbury as this is my preferred method. It all seemed so easy on Carroll Tech's video, but as is common in my life, much more complicated when I put my hands on it. I've manually entered reference pages for years and thought this would be a great time saver. Another issue related to the same lesson from Carroll Tech was using the table of contents generator. All I got was the headings of contents, chapter, and page number, nothing else. This leads me to believe that something is going on in word that Duxbury isn't recognizing, as I'm sure the document has the chapter titles marked as heading 1,........ etc. I would like to pursue this further, maybe I'll contact Duxbury tech support and see what is involved in constructing the line, as I'm illiterate in digging into the Word macros. Thanks again, Tom George Bell <george@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> wrote: Hi Tom, I asked a real DBT guru, and he came back with the following. George. It is likely that DBT isn't finding an installation of MS Word. Is Word installed? Is is installed to a default path? (That *shouldn't* matter, but shouldn't doesn't necessarily mean "doesn't".) Is the document being embossed/opened from SWIFT? This particular issue, when it comes up, is hard to diagnose. What we generally have to do is to manually construct the command line that DBT is attempting to use to generate the page map. Then we ask the end user to run that command line and observe what happens. The sad truth is that only Word knows where the page breaks of a Word file are. So we positively need to run a Word macro to make that happen. --------------------------------- From: duxuser-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:duxuser-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Tom Whalen Sent: 16 June 2006 15:48 To: duxuser@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [duxuser] Re: 8-dot Braille Thanks for the info George. You seem to be the Duxbury Guru, do you have any ideas on how to fix the following problem? I'm currently taking a class from Carroll Tech on using the Duxbury Braille Translator. Although I have used Duxbury for 4 years, there still is a lot I don't know. I'm working on a lesson, which involves using the word importer under the global menu. This is supposed to allow the reference page numbers from one of their downloaded files to appear in Duxbury. After I checked the make page break box, when I try and open the document I get an error message that says, "Unable to create page map. Print page breaks will not be marked." I was told that the first time I tried this Duxbury would bring up MS Word and I would have to enable macros, This never happened, although a previous user could have enabled this, therefore I would not see it again. Thanks in advance, Tom George Bell <george@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> wrote: Just to expand a little on this topic, 8 dot braille is indeed more commonly used with braille displays, although a number of European country users particularly do emboss hard copy. There is a detailed explanation at http://8dotbraille.com and a Google search for "8 dot braille" will provide more sources of information.
