[duxuser] Re: Need Ideas on Duxbury Training


Hi George, I tried to copy all the info on the About DBT but can't.  I hear
version 10.3 and for Windows 2000, 95 and such.  The date is Jan 09, 2001  I
don't recall that this is version 10.3 I thought it was something like 4 or
so.  I remember Don Breda, mentioning a code for ms word to keep things like
the original.  There was an updated version a few years ago that by going
into the menu, you were able to do that .  Andy

Hi Andy,

Could you find out exactly what version you have please?  This is
found by slecting "About DBT" from DBT's Help  menu.

This will help us to more accurately answer your question.

George

Hi George, I am using Duxbury which I bought back in 2001.  How do I
set the braille trans so that it keeps ms word 2000 trans doc with its
spacing.  I cannot get Duxbury to have any line spaces.  Everything
seems to be tightly together.
Also, what benefits would I have to upgrade to Duxbury 10 or the
current version... Andy

Hi Ray,

I suggest you perhaps gen up on creating a Template to produce Grade
1, and install that on his system, perhaps as the default.

For pure speed of getting up and running quickly, concentrate on his
Word skills, which will certainly not be time wasted.  He will benefit
from this in his normal printed work, and of course when importing
into DBT.

George.

Hello:

I'd like some input from this list.  We have a client to whom we gave
a donated computer and a Braille Blazer embosser.  The computer has
Duxbury 10.7 demo on it.

This person needs some training on Duxbury and I'm going to train with
him in about 10 days, probably spending 2 to 2 and a half hours during
that first training session.

I think this person will want to emboss pretty basic documents such as
letters, homework assignments, and the like.  He does want to know how
to put things into Grade 1 and Computer Braille.  I've already shown
him how to italicize things in word and how the italics are imported
to Duxbury.

Like I am sure many of us did, I learned just what I needed to learn
when I started using Duxbury.  So my question, especially to those who
have done training in Duxbury is, what are some of the things you'd
suggest I teach this person, particularly in the short time we'll have
together to get him started with Duxbury?  Any thoughts would be
appreciated.
