We’re starting to hear more and more about BRF files. They’re the default braille format on platforms such as RNIB Reading Services; they’re regularly used in the transcription industry to share braille versions of documents between producers; and notetaker users have used them to transfer files from one brand of braille device to another. But questions still prevail:
- What, exactly, is a BRF?
- Why would you use BRF files over more mainstream file formats?
- What are the limitations of BRF?
- How do you read BRF files?
- How do you navigate through them?
- How do you create them?
Matthew Horspool answered all these questions and more on Tuesday 4 May.
