Duxbury braille translator and NVDA: any addon or anyone have successfully use this software fully with NVDA?

Hi,

I am going to purchase this software, Duxbury braille translator (dbt). I know with jaws there is the script for dbt. However, as far as I know, no addon for NVDA. So, in case this is still correct, anyone here have successfully use this software with NVDA and enjoy using it? Meaning can use all features of this software even without addons.

For example, when dealing with formatting, reading braille codes and so on

Any feedback and comments are appreciated.

thanks

Hello,
I tried using this software with NVDA and I found it to not be
accessible for doing what you are trying to accomplish.
The software itself is accessible using NVDA; however it's the reading
of the braille and formatting that I found not to work.
This was with the current version of Duxbury Braille translator.

Did you try narrator? I have no need for this but its been around for an age now, and used to work well in the old Dos box.
I seem to also recall a dolphin product called Cipher, but the old brain cells are a little vague on that.

Have you tried NVDA with
Braille Blaster?
Maybe it will do what you need.

Hi!

Since DBT 12.5, they made major improvements to improve accessibility with NVDA (mostly because of supporting UI automation). Now I have DBT 12.6 purchased and used with NVDA.

Basically it works quite fine, especially comparing with previous versions. No chaotic cursor jumping, no problems with braille tables, as I can now use Braille Unicode for output, etc. I have no problems when reading, selecting and navigating text. I also succeed in reading codes, although it's still not possible to explore it with cursor (we can only move to the first character of the code). The status bar with information is also available.

The only problem I've encountered so far is following: when both print and braille documents are opened at the same time, the status bar shows incorrect cursor position, both line number and page number is shown wrong. The problem is solved when exiting a print document (after translation to braille, of course). I've reported it to Duxbury Systems, hopefully it will be fixed.

I cannot call myself a professional and advanced braille transcriber, but for now I like the way DBT works with NVDA, at least according to my use cases. If someone finds a feature that is not accessible in DBT 12.6 with NVDA, I will be interested to know about this.

Thanks,
Andrey

I have successfully used Duxbury with NVDA; but it was an older version of Duxbury.  That  was before they made us switch to this new, nasty Braille code.

I use duxbury with NVDA but am not able to read the files. I am very thankful to have a Braille notetaker to proof the files on. Duxbury would love for NVDA to have something to work with it but have said it has not happened yet.

UEB isn’t that bad, and that’s coming from a 46 year-old who started learning Grade 2 Braille right from age 5.

You should be able to use different braile codes/tables with Duxbury.

Never used with NVDA but used to run it with JAWS at an old job. There was some pretty heavy scripting going on there behind the scenes. Not sure who was responsible for that but I think they were themselves part of the Duxbury package.

You are absolutely right it’s not that bad,
It’s absolutely horrible.
