Definitely Duxbury—the big advantage of Duxbury for the colleges is that you do not need very much knowledge of braille in order to use it. You can set up your documents in MS Word with all the styles and formatting. You can even use Math Type in Word to create Nemeth math braille with Duxbury.

Dux is definitely the way to go! I second Teresa's comments. Also, you might want to talk with the student to be sure that they want actual hard copy. Most students these days re using a computer with refreshable braille displays for the bulk of their books. About the only thing that we output to hard copy these days is tactile graphics or reference materials that they need at a moment's notice.
Hope all is well!

I am in the process of researching Braille Translation Software for purchase. Could you share your recommendations? I have heard that Duxbury is effective but want to review all recommended software. We have an Emprint SpotDot Color Braille Printer on campus and the student is requesting printed Braille textbooks.
