Braille2000 2.274 brings new functionality, fixes

For Immediate Release:
December 22, 2019: 11:23 AM US Pacific Standard Time
JaredRimer.info’s Braille2000 Transcribing as a blind person

Today we’ve braught a new feature to Braille2000 in regards to unicode lookup and inserting. This dialogue was mainly a graphical interface, but a text representation has been introduced with the update released very early this morning. It also fixes Dagger support in the Braille translation.

The interface for the unicode lookup is very nice, It was introduced after I wanted a list of the most common codes. I have a very short list of items that I’ve used through my lessons, but then I needed more. This lookup tool can put the characters directly in to your Braille document, and also we can take the decimal number (alt+number) or unicode number or other set. that might be available within this tool.

I’m not too familiar with all of this, however, if the decimal check box is unchecked, the system gives the unicode number which is different.

We had some major issues with transcription in regards to the dagger and double dagger. I’ve never seen these characters until assignment 17, and there are several in there. The assignment teaches formatting of various kinds, with footnotes and other notations. The write up on 17 will be done after I submit it to the proctor for grading.

To get this latest update:

  • Hit alt+p for panel and select file management (m) and press enter
  • Tab to fetch software update
  • The update will be dated 12/22 2:03
  • Press enter
  • B2K will tell you that it needs to close to be able to update

The update will run and download and it’ll then install over itself. The version number is still 2.274.

If you have any questions, please contact Bob or I, and I hope you enjoy these changes and new functionality!
