English Braille American Edition 1994 on CD-ROM for Windows is a manual for teaching braille designed for individuals who are blind or have low vision. This CD-ROM edition contains the complete text of the literary braille code manual published by the Braille Authority of North America (BANA), including all the print and braille examples, and all the latest officially published updates. This CD-ROM allows both sighted and blind users to access the manual interactively on a personal computer, without having to carry, handle, or leaf through the pages of the hardcopy print or braille manual. Extensive hyperlinks enable users to jump to any referenced topic or example. An index allows quick lookup of the braille equivalent for any word or contraction shown in the manual. A search feature allows the entire manual to be searched for all occurrences of specific words or phrases. COMPATIBILITY: For use with IBM and compatible computers. SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS: Windows 95 if Internet Explorer 5.0 or later is also installed (Internet Explorer 5.0 is included on the CD-ROM); Windows 98 or later without Internet Explorer 5.0. The CD-ROM can be used together with Windows-based braille transcription programs like Duxbury or ED-IT PC (see separate entries), or with DOS-based programs like MegaDots, MicroBraille or Pokadot when run under Windows.
