How would you compare this to duxburry?

If you have Duxburry, use it.  Wintrans is a windows front end to the old NFBTrans program which ran under MS DOS.  Its main purpose is to convert .brf to .txt and vice versa.  Embosser support and other features of NFBTrans were not tested by the author for lack of equipment.

Thanks, got it.  There is a very minor difference in the file sizes between the copy you send and the one posted by Gene, but as far as I can tell they are still the same version.

Did you use Gmail to send it?  Gmail won't send executable attachments.  Although if you change the file extension, it will go through.

Loy said he has it and would send it as an attachment, but I haven't received it yet.

I am using version 2 in windows 10, it works fine for me. I only use to convert Braille files to text. I have not used for converting text to Braille. I am assuming it would work just as well for that.

I knew that there were two versions but I wasn't aware that anyone was using the second version in Windows 10.  I don't know if people are successfully using the later version in general or if some are and some aren't.

Gene, Are you aware that there was a second incarnation of Wintrans?  If so, perhaps she is using the first version.  I say this because Wintrans is working fine on my HP desktop which was upgraded from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10.

Yes, Windows 10.  I don't know if there is a new version of Wintrans that will work with Windows 10 but I've seen this problem before.  The old one doesn't run in Windows 10.

Subject: [TechTalk] Question about the WinTrans program and Windows 10.

 

Hi all,

I have a number of .brf files which I would like to translate to text.
When I was using Windows 7, I remember having success with the WinTrans
program to accomplish this task. However, when trying to use it under
Windows 10, I get an unspecified error dialogue which says something to
the effect that there was a translation error, although I can't get it
to tell me exactly what the error is. It just shows the paths of the
input and output files, and an OK button. I've tried checking around the
screen with NVDA's object review, which is how I know that the error
doesn't give much more information than that.


Does anyone have any ideas what might be causing this problem? Thanks.
