Yes, the braille blaster is a translation software. As it is a free version, it may not be as developed as duxbury
Here is the link to the dux home page;

So is Braille Blaster a Braille translation program, like Duxbury? Is Duxbury still around, does anyone know? When I had a Blazer, I embossed directly from my BrailleNote Apex via a USB to serial converter. I wore out two Blazers.' The Blazer is a good little machine; neither of mine lasted very long, but they eid good work.

Hi, I also have a Braille Blazer printer, but I have not gotten it to work yet.
What is the full name of your Braille Blaster translation program Also, where did you obtain it?
Is there anything that you think I should know to have this working with both my Windows 7 computer and also with my Windows 10 computer??
Thanks very much for any information!
Sincerely, Vicky V
How are you hooking up the blazer.
I have connected the Braille blazer to my computer, I have also set up the printer into the printer settings, and I think I put the setup information into Braille Blaster translation program. The problem I am having when I go to print text I have brought up into the Braille Blaster translation program and I go to print the text for some reason the text does not get to the Braille printer. Does anybody know what may be causing this problem and how I can fix the problem.
