Many of the people doing embossing are not doing as good as they could because 
they aren't up to speed on Braille format and new Braille rules. I have had a 
business and tried to keep up, b ut I know not all do. Mostly they do literary 
Braille because they can't readily do anything else; music Braille is hard to 
do unless you have the software to do it. A transcriber who knows Braille music 
can do it with the Braille software such as Duxbury or Braille 2000, and of 
course there is  Braille Music software but it is expensive.

Braille transcription as we know it may be a dying art, but in this state all 
have switched to using the computer for it. Braille itself is probably not 
dying, especially if those of us who use it continue to push for it not to be 
because people need to know how to read. Transcription will come down to being 
done in software such as Word, just as an example, and then translated. That 
will mean proofreading will become even more important. JMHO.
