Braille2000 is a comprehensive tool for producing braille. Braille2000 is fully Internet-aware, making it as simple as a mouse click to send a braille document to a braille production center, to a school, to a blind student, or to a fellow transcriber.

Braille2000 is fully compatible with ED-IT PC and is able to read and write .ABT kinds of files. But Braille2000 with its New Millennium technology is XML aware: you can read and write braille XML files as well as translate XML print text into braille.

Braille2000 is for Windows95*, Windows98, WindowsME, Windows2000, WindowsXP, WindowsVISTA, Windows7, Windows8, Windows8.1, and Windows10.
