There is just a bit more formatting to do. Select the title for the entire presentation and
make it a Heading 1. Make sure that any URLs or e-mail addresses are set to CBC
(Computer Braille Code). As an added touch for navigation, you can place an asterisk,
followed by a space, in front of the first heading for each slide (Index 1’s). Save as a
Word file and open the file in Duxbury as usual.
Duxbury allows you to Braille tables, foreign languages, computer language, and math.
With the exception of the math, the other features are built into Duxbury and do not
require any additional software.
We will cover advanced table, foreign languages, and math in the advanced Duxbury
class. Simple tables we will cover here.
Tables in Braille can be quite tricky, but there are a couple of hints that will help. You
can place tables on facing pages in a book. If the label for a column is rather long, you
can assign the column a number, and insert a little key before the table telling what label
corresponds to which number.
You might, for example, have something like the following:
1 Population Growth after World War I
2 Population Growth after World War II
If the table is really a list of facts that do not need a row and column cross reference, you
can use your index styles to create an indented format.
The following table, for example, does not have any cross reference of rows and columns
and could be set up in an indented style.

When you set up this table in Word, you can make the first column index 1 style, the
second column index 2 style, and the third column index 3 style as shown below.
