NOTE: Each time you download the flashcard program from our site, you will get the latest available version. It will overwrite any older versions that you may have on your computer.
NOTE: if for some reason you get lost in the flashcard program by hitting the wrong key or key sequence, tab to an edit field which announces as "Edit, type in text.", and press Alt-n or +. This will return the program to the new word edit field.
NOTE: The following steps make use of the flashcard program's versatility, and are optional.
You can also create your own custom word libraries for Uncontracted (Grade 1) and Contracted (Grade 2) Braille by using a text editor. The files must be in *.txt format, where * is the filename. This feature allows you to create study words that may be subject oriented such as math, history, engineering, or health care, or level oriented for children, youth, adults, or professionals. The words selected do not necessarily need to possess a common theme. Multiple libraries can be created, saved, and reloaded for use later.
Use the sample dictionaries as a template. You do not have to include the numbers for the dot patterns, but each word must be on its own line. All you need is a list of words with 12 or fewer and five or more letters; the program will do the rest. Enjoy!
