[nobe-l] Braille

I use Duxbury to create my assignments.  I enter everything manually using the sdf and jkl keys. Doing otherwise defeats the purpose of taking the course.  I then save my files in a brf format and submit them electronically.  On my first assignment I sent the file as a dbt file and the instructor kept saying that one of my inputs was wrong. I nearly lost my mind arguing with the instructor because I knew it was right. I think the braille display unit being used at their end caused a problem.  Anyway, using the brf format solved the issue. So, what I am saying here is to find out what type of braille display device (note-taker or whatever) the instructor may be using and be sure of the file format the device will recognize without any errors.

I am currently completing the certification course to become a 
braille transcriber through the National Federation Of The Blind 
under a contract with the National Library Service For The Blind 
and Physically Handicapped.  This week I received an email 
containing the report on my first three assignments.  Even though 
I used the Perkins brailler to complete these, they still 
contained errors.  I am thinking about submitting my assignments 
electronically for the rest of the course.
