You will need to enter the braille input items from a standard keyboard using ASCII Braille or, alternatively, copy and paste from an existing braille file.
There is an option to display your input using either a print
font or as simulated braille dots.
This option requires one of the Duxbury fonts to be installed on your computer.
If the text of the upper line of letters just below this paragraph is displayed in print characters but the
lower line is displayed as simulated braille dots then
a Duxbury font is already installed.
However, if both lines show print characters, then
you will need to
download and install
a free braille font from Duxbury Systems in order to view your
your braille input
as simulated braille.
Once the page is open, you can print a copy of the Table from Windows by right-clicking on the Table and selecting "Print Picture…."
Although this standard ASCII Braille Table associates the capital ASCII letters with the (small) braille letters, BackLit (along with most six-dot braille applications) recognizes either the capital or the small ASCII letters as the ASCII equivalents to the corresponding braille letters.
The beta version of BackLit does not support six-key entry since the release version of BackLit is not intended for interactive use.
