Hi David, Peter and all,
Thanks a lot David for your detailed message, it works quite well. The problem 
is that the internal name of the ViewPlus font is "Braille29 Ascii" (with a 
space), and I assume that DBT looks for a "braille29Ascii" font.
Now it is perfect with the modification I made into the registry.
Thanks again for your efficient help,

  Yes, I was just looking up an earlier document I wrote. Here is the 
information on the Tiger Embossers:

  Driving the Tiger Embossers from DBT 10.5 from Duxbury Systems
  Duxbury Systems has made its best efforts to make the driver for the Tiger 
Embosser as automatic as possible. But we are aware that systems, software, and 
customer requirements may change, so we have made it possible to make 
adjustments by using the registry. The decision to use single sided vs. 
interpoint is done by direct access to the Tiger .ini file. If this does not 
work, it is because the name of this file was changed by ViewPlus.
  Here is a basic introduction to the registry: 
  To start the registry editor, click on the Start Menu, select Run, and then 
type regedit <Enter>
  Click on the plus sign next to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
  Click on the plus sign next to SOFTWARE
  Click on the plus sign next to Duxbury Systems, Inc
  Click on the plus sign next to Embosser
  If there is no key called Tiger, right click on Embosser, then select New, 
then select Key. Change the name of the key to Tiger
  If your concern is the font name, right click on Tiger, then select New, then 
select String Value. Change the name of the string to braille_font_name.
  Right click on braille_font_name and set the value to the Braille font on 
your system you want DBT 10.5 to be using.
  Without this procedure, DBT will try to use the font Braille29Ascii
  You can also create the following DWORD data (DWORD data just means a number)
  braille_font_size                   Use 10 times the desired font size. The 
default is 290 (i.e. for 29 points)
  magic_85                               Use the internal code for 8.5 inch 
wide paper. The default is 263.
  magic_115                             Use the internal cod for 11.5 inch wide 
paper. The default is 131
  For programmer types, here is the same information in a more condensed form:
  key is                      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Duxbury Systems, 
  default values are:
  braille_font_name =    Braille29Ascii
  braille_font_size =    290  (units are tenths of a point, so this is 29 
  magic_85       263 Magic number for 8.5 by 11 inch paper in the Tiger driver 
(if Tiger driver changes, this will mess up)
  magic_115      131 Magic number for 11.5 by 11 inch paper in the Tiger driver 
(if Tiger driver changes, this will mess up)

    Hello all,
    I have to set up a Tiger Pro from ViewPlus with DBT 10.5 and I encounter a
    problem when I emboss: the text is printed with "normal characters", I mean
    in Courier font, not in Braille...
    To get braille characters, I must PRINT (not EMBOSS) the text, so the
    Braille font is used, but it is not what I want.
    I have installed the last version of the driver, and I notice that when I
    use the translator that VIEWPLUS offers (that is a DBT-based translator),
    the result is quite good, using the DBT braille fofnt.
    Do you have informations and experiences with this printer?
    Thanks in advance for your help,
