Braille2000 2.274 introduces new options for percent code usage

For Immediate Release:

December 30, 2019 11:05 AM US Pacific time 13:05 US Central Time

We’re happy to release a new Braille2000 release for those of you who use percent codes.

Assignment 18 illustrates an assignment whereby you’re handing out documents, and each document needs to be on a separate page. Those documents that have a second page need a running head.

To accomodate this, there are new percent codes which have been introduced, and this update understands these.

  • %interpoint   (declares the document to be interpoint mode)
  • %pager        (begins a new braille page WITHOUT a runnning head
  • %page1        (begins a new front-side page, used in an interpoint document)
  • %page2 and %page 3 are similar in regards to Interpoint transcription but %page1 may be used the most

This update released today understands these codes. While the lessons tell you to use single sided mode even for electronic delivery, the final lesson which is 20 stresses to using single sided. I could see us using this mode for our work when we do interpoint work.

The update can be done by doing the following:

  • Hit alt+p for panel, and m for file management.
  • Tab to fetch software update.
  • On that screen select Braille2000 2.274 which is dated 12/30/2019
  • A dialog will pop up to tell you that B2K needs to be closed. Close it at your convenience, and the update will run.

As per usual, contact Bob or I if you have any questions or concerns. The percent code aspect of Braille2000 is going to be a helpful edition and I’ve been using it for my lessons. Between the simulated Braille when needed, and the percent codes and these new editions, we’re having a fine product. The Talking Edition can also be used to check to make sure that the formatting you wanted is used as intended.

Thank you Bob, for your hard work and dedication toward this valuable service toward the blind transcriber. My hope is to get people interested in a different method of doing this work, and this edition adds to what we might need.

Contact the Braille2000 team by going to our site and finding the method that works best for you.

Thanks so much for your time and interest in our product!
