  1. DBT 11.1 with Word CTEBVI 2011 ConferenceSession 402

  2. The Presenter • Peter J. Sullivan • VP Development, Duxbury Systems, Inc. • Product Manager for DBT • With Duxbury since 1988 • Available at peter@duxsys.com

  3. The Presentation • Short & Sweet • Lots of time for hands-on work • Lots of time for Q&A • Please interrupt! • Take this down: peter@duxsys.com(All other notes are optional)

  4. DBT and Word Part 1: SWIFT • SWIFT is a Word Add-In that automates some integration with DBT and other braille-related tasks. • For US use, it offers little more than a convenient bridge from Word to DBT.

  5. DBT and Word Part 2: Templates • BANA Templates, developed by Susan Christensen, are included with DBT. • Text layout mimics braille formats. • Style names reflect BANA categorizations. • Some styles must be specified as single-level or multi-level. • All text should be tagged with some style from the template.

  6. Which Word for Me?(Word 2003) • Word 2003 uses menus and toolbars(Duxbury supports these very well.) • Word 2003 can read, modify, and save .docx files, with a free downloadable add-in.(Search for .docx Word 2003) • (Word 2000 may not be supported by Duxbury in the near future)

  7. Which Word for Me?(Word 2003)

  8. Which Word for Me?(Word 2003)

  9. Which Word for Me?(Word 2007 and Word 2010) • Word 2007/2010 uses the “Fluent Ribbon”(Duxbury doesn’t yet support this well.) • One key feature is hard to find in Word 2007/2010. • “Fluent Ribbon” support from Duxbury is in development.

  10. Which Word for Me?(Word 2007 and Word 2010)

  11. Which Word for Me?(Word 2007 and Word 2010)

  12. Which Word for Me?(Word 2007 and Word 2010)

  13. Installation • First, install DBT and Word • You can install these in either order • When DBT is run, it will prompt you to install: • SWIFT • BANA Templates • French Templates too • DBT prompts about updating and “downdating” too. • Each computer user is prompted separately

  14. Attaching a BANA Template • This step makes the BANA styles and toolbar available to you. • Procedure is important: • First, attach updating styles. • Next, attach (again) without updating styles. • Word 2003: Select Tools, Templates and Add-Ins. • Word 2007: The “Document Template” function is in the Developer Tab. Use Office Menu, Word Options, Popular to show the Developer Tab. • Next SWIFT will make this simple.

  15. Setting View Options • This step allows you to see the paragraph style name for each paragraph in your document. • Seeing the style names is important to be sure that the document is properly tagged. • Word 2003: View, Normal; set Tools, Options, View, Style Area Width to 1" • Word 2007: View, Draft; set Office Menu, Word Options, Advanced, Display, Style area pane width to 1" • Next SWIFT will make this simple.

  16. Preparing a Simple Exam (A Short Demo)

  17. Embedded Mathematics • Support for Equation Editor built into Word 2007 and Word 2010 is limited • Support for MathType is much more extensive • Requires installation of MathType • Supports most *earlier* versions of Equation Editor • Includes support for matrices

  18. Tables • Direct support for simple embedded tables • Formatter chooses “best” format • You can override that choice • Use [l] and hard spaces to force formats • “Nested” tables are problematic

  19. File Formats • RTF files are not directly supported. Use Word to convert these. • SWIFT will prompt for RTF conversion. • Word 97 – Word 2010 native formats are directly supported. • Native format changed with Word 2007. • DBT’s importer was rewritten from scratch for Word 2007. • DBT will often import a Word 2007 file differently than the same file in the earlier format. • The Word 2007 importer is simpler, and will be better-maintained going forward.
