BEX 3.1 Multi-media Word Processing is a voice output and large print word processor for Apple IIe and IIc computers designed for persons with visual disabilities. It can create large print, braille, or synthesized speech output. Large print can appear on the screen or compatible dot-matrix printers. BEX can translate standard print files to grade 2 braille, or back-translate grade 2 braille files to print. Special symbols, called translators, can be typed into the files to determine whether grade 2 or grade 1 braille is produced. Word processing functions include editing, reviewing, changing, page numbering, creating running heads, and setting margins and tabs. Three preview modes create an exact image of the printed or embossed page for visual and voice review. Cursor control allows for movement by character, word, sentence, or paragraph, with or without speech output. BEX can be learned at three levels of complexity. The program directly reads DOS 3.3 and ProDOS text files, and can import text from other computers or scanners through serial connection; contact manufacturer for further information. An Apple computer with a minimum of 128K is required. Contact manufacturer for details on compatibility with braille output devices, printers, and speech synthesis hardware. COMPATIBILITY: For use on Apple IIc, Apple IIe, and Apple IIGS computers.
