Braille System of Biblos

This manual describes in detail the Biblos Braille System, the environment for working with the braille functionalities of the software. It describes windows, structures, concepts and basic logic of the Biblos Braille environment.

For those who approach the Braille System and Biblos for the first time, the jargon used may not be entirely clear. However, the manual is constantly subject to changes and additions. Suggestions and advice on how to improve it are welcome.

This manual is written by Giuseppe Di Grande, who owns all the copyright and publication rights, in any form and by any means.
