Text labels are used to add texts in braille to your tactile diagrams, ranging from small texts labelling elements in the image to complete texts in braille. When using text labels, it is important to select the right braille table in order to get the correct braille output.
There are three different types of text labels, which are described in the following manual sections:
- Computer keyboard input; regular text input converted to braille output
- Braille keyboard input; direct input of braille characters using Perkins style braille keyboard
- Math input; use an equation editor or the keyboard as input for mathematical braille notation
To place a text label in the design, select ‘Add text label’ from the drawing tools toolbar. The type of text label can be chosen from the right vertical properties toolbar. Click in the design to position the text label.
