Why do I need a braille translator?
You could send text directly from your computer to an embosser without using a braille translator. The result would be difficult to read. The blind user would find no distinction between upper and lower case letters, a lack of braille contractions (specialized abbreviations), and a garbling of numbers and punctuation. The layout would be incorrect, without braille page numbers or any other formatting.
