Accessibility Comments

Some of the features of this app are accessed using the toolbar, but it's easily navigated using control-f5. The interface is very accessible with Voiceover.


The app is fully accessible with VoiceOver and is easy to navigate and use.

Other Comments

I get the impression that this app is optimized for creating Braille signage, but it's very easy to use for small translation jobs. The braille can be exported to ASCII and Unicode, as well as image files. I used it to convert extracted text from a pdf Quick Reference guide to Unified English Braille, brf, and it worked great. I just renamed the txt extension to brf and put it on my notetaker's SD card.
