Hi Deb, A brf file is ready to be embossed and can be used by many people with different braille production programs or text editors. A DXB file contains codes unique to Duxbury and cannot be embossed easily if you don't own DBT. You can save a DXB file as a brf file. Just go to File, Save as (F3) and choose the option from "save as type." where you can choose two BRF types "formatted braille, U. S. encoding" or "formatted braille local encoding." If you use the US encoding you will be OK. Never throw away a DXB file if you'll want to edit the text someday. BRF files are easy to share and emboss but not easy to edit with good results.

What is the difference and if you're going to put books on the Web as, say, web braille, they're Brf so how do you save a document if you've had it in Duxbury as a dxb file? My boss asked me to check on this. I'll be away after 11:30 today, want be back until Tuesday, but I'll look forward to any info then. Thanks, Deb B.
