The Braille Tab
This tab contains settings for transcribing some Braille elements. These settings can be stored in the open document or in the chosen configuration profile, i.e. maintained as settings for any uploaded document.
- Cell width: box for setting the width of a braille cell, which is useful for converting and correctly interpreting document formatting;
- Cell height: box to set the height of a braille cell, useful for conversion and the correct interpretation of document formatting;
- Calculate cells: This button allows you to find the correct values for the width and height of a braille cell, calculating them based on the ratio between the size of the sheet and the characters and braille lines;
- uppercase words: box from which you can choose whether or not Biblos should detect the presence of words entirely in uppercase. Three modes are available: "Don't detect" to tell Biblos not to add any prefixes to capitalized words; "Only initial" to tell Biblos to add only the prefix at the beginning of each capitalized word; "Initial and final" to tell Biblos to add prefixes and suffixes for each capitalized word;
- Uppercase paragraphs: the box from which you can choose whether Biblos should detect the presence of paragraphs written entirely in capitals. Four modes are available: "Don't detect" to tell Biblos not to add any prefixes to all capitalized written paragraphs; "Only initial" to tell Biblos to add only the prefix at the beginning of each capitalized paragraph; "Initial and final" to tell Biblos to add prefixes and suffixes for each capitalized paragraph; "Classic" to tell Biblos to add the capitalized sentence prefix at the beginning of paragraphs, and the capitalized character prefix at the beginning of the last word of paragraphs.;
- Date and time type: box from which you can choose whether Biblos should detect the presence of numbers that refer to date and time. When measuring the date and time, the special prefixes are used to prepare the correct separators;
- Hyphenation type: the box from which you choose how Biblos is to intervene in the hyphenation of words or numbers;
- Print Styles: this box is used to choose whether to print the font styles and how to print them. The Biblos Method allows you to print all styles: bold, italic, underlined, strikethrough. The prefixes for the various styles are contained in the Braille tables. The Classic Method allows you to partially print styles, in keeping with the traditional way of printing them. Specifically, only bold and italic styles are considered;
- Ignores justified paragraphs format: if this box is activated all justified paragraphs will be printed as if they were aligned to the left. If the box is deactivated, the justification of the paragraphs also takes place in Braille;
- Ignore character spacing: If this box is activated, spacing between characters is not detected. If it is deactivated, the spacing is also respected in Braille;
- Ignore character position: If the box is activated, the characters in the top or bottom are printed as normal characters. If the box is deactivated, the position in the superscript and in the subscript of the characters is detected and translated with the special prefixes;
- Roman numerals in lower case: If this box is activated, all the Roman numerals found in the text are printed in lower case, i.e. without the special prefix in upper case. If this box is disabled, the Roman numerals are printed with only one uppercase prefix.
