Document: Translation Tables

Keystroke: t from Document menu.

The translation tables determine the substitution rules used by DBT. Only one table can be picked for each document.

For more details, please see: Language Translation Tables.

See Language Translation Tables and the relevant sub-topic(s) for more specific details in the on-line Help..

This option is to allow you to produce an ink-print copy of your Print or Braille document.

(Please do not confuse Print with Emboss!)

Print (Text Document):

When you select Print from the original text document, you will see the following screen appear. This gives you the option to print just one, or more copies. You can also choose which pages to print:

From there, you have the option to press Cancel, or OK to proceed.

NOTE: The Interline Print check box is also grayed out, and cannot be accessed at this stage.

Print (Braille Document):

When you select Print from within your Braille document, the same screen appears, but with two subtle differences - The Interline Print Check Box is now available and "Print Page Number(s)" is changed to "Braille Page Number(s)". The latter change is because you may choose pages to emboss by following the braille page numbering, but not the print page reference numbers.

Image shows the Print dialog for Braille documents where there is an available Interline Print check box.

Interline Print:

This is an extremely useful facility whereby as well as printing braille dots on paper, text also appears above the line of braille. The printed copy will appear as follows. (N.B. Illustration was translated using a line length of 20 Cells)

Duxbury is constantly working on both revisions to existing tables, and developing new tables. These pages should therefore be taken as a general guide, at the time the document was written. Each language Topic has a "References, History and Credits" section at the end providing details.
