Braille on Apple Products
hi everyone. really sorry if this post has already been bought up, but do you any of you use any braille translation/editing software on your Mac with voice over? i have tried Lewy and looked at iBraille but they are both old! any working alternatives you'd recommend? many thanks!
braille translating editing software for lion
I use Perky Duck to generate
thank you both! i haven't
I have used both Parallels
I guess I should look into
Partial work around (Perky Duck via Wine)
I am jumping in years later on this thread, as I ran into while trying to accomplish basic braille input on a Mac. I was able to get Perky Duck 10.5 working for my needs using WINE. In case anyone is in a similar state, I wanted to drop a link to instructions:

There needs to be software like this for the mac
I have've not seen any braille software for the Mac as far as this goes. I have Tiger on my Windows machine. I just use that and Microsoft Word. There really needs to be software like this for the mac. As far as I know. Ducks Barry is not VoiceOver accessible, and not mac compatible. Nighter is Tiger.
My embosser i have is a ViewPlus Embosser that can do braille and images.
Have you looked at Braille Blaster
It's in Beta and free and works on windows, mac and more. Here's the link: http://brailleblaster.org/ There's also Duxbury for mac: http://www.duxburysystems.com/product2.asp?product=DBT%20Mac&level=major&action=up Have fun and please share your thoughts and results with the group. I'm sure we'd all love to hear how well these software packages work.
