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

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
