If You Are a Braille Reader

If you are a braille reader, we have .brf files of the Power Point used in each lesson. If you are using Duxbury, before opening any BRF files in Duxbury, go into the Global menu. Select "Formatted Braille Importer" and then check the box for "Read formatted braille without interpretation" at the top of the window. This will ensure that nothing is changed when opening the BRF files.  If you do not have an embosser and want files in hard copy braille please send your name, U.S. mailing address, and which files you want to herzberg@uscupstate.edu
