Perhaps Gaier Deitrich and others more familiar with braille embossers can

Subject: [Athen] Braille for Spanish

Hello everyone,

We have a blind student taking a Spanish class and a Spanish lab. She
requires Braille for her syllabus, handouts, and assignments. I need help
figuring out how to most appropriately accommodate her. Our college has the
current Braille items:

. Juliet 120

. Duxbury software

. Firebird

Will these products make accurate conversions to Spanish? If so, how do we
do it?

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
