Hi Claire,

Duxbury has a version for the MAC which runs the same way.

Hi Paul, I do have Duxbury for Windows, and no braille software at all for the mac, I can't find anything suitable, and I haven't ever used BrailleBlaster, have you tried it on the mac, and if so, does it work well? Also, what is the difference, apart from the obvious price difference, between BrailleBlaster and Duxbury?

I have tried to use Duxbury but the only closest option I can find is LBF format, there's no option to save as BRF, can anyone help please?
