Production Notes

Written and edited with (what else?) BEX. The large print edition was coded with BEX and output to LaserWriter Plus, using JustText on the Macintosh, by Jesse Kaysen. Body type is 15 on 18 point Palatino with Courier and Courier-Bold; headlines are 15 point Bookman-Bold-Italic. Duplicated under Betty's watchful eye at OmniPress in Madison, Wisconsin. The audio tape edition was recorded on an APH recorder by Shannon Green and Nevin Olson, then duplicated on Recordex 3-to-1 high speed duplicators. The braille edition was transcribed with TranscriBEX by Jesse Kaysen, then embossed, printed, and bound by National Braille Press, Inc., in Boston, Massachusetts.

We want to express our deep appreciation for the invaluable assistance of our beta testers:

Welcome to BEX

BEX is a word processing program for the Apple II family of computers. Using BEX, you can write, proofread, review, edit, and print text. BEX also has some unusual features that most word processors lack: We've designed BEX for people with varying degrees of vision impairments. BEX translates print into grade II braille and produces braille on a wide variety of equipment. BEX generates voice output as well as large print on the screen. BEX also generates large print on a number of inexpensive dot-matrix printers. BEX reads textfiles created by a wide range of Apple programs, providing bridges to other software.

BEX Has Three Levels

We recognize it takes time to learn how to use all of BEX's features. To make learning BEX easier, we've divided the program and its documentation into three self-paced units, or Levels: Learner, User, and Master. The BEX features just mentioned are all available at the Learner Level. We recommend that you start out at the Learner Level, even if you have used other Apple computer software before. We focus your attention on the essential BEX features that allow you to make best use of the program's many capabilities.

When you're ready for more sophistication, BEX's User Level offers various tools for working with other software and computers. BEX can import text into the Apple from other computer systems, including braille devices such as the tape-based and disk-based VersaBraille; optical scanners like the Kurzweil Reading Machine; and other computers, such as the Macintosh, Keynote, or IBM-PC. To complement this feature, BEX's User Level offers a translator from grade II braille into inkprint. The User Level lets you define transformation rules for BEX's file-driven search-and-replace utility, which enables you to change material originally intended for inkprint into good braille.

At the Master Level, BEX supports up to eight disk drives. These disk drives can be RAM drives, portions of the Apple's memory that are treated like a floppy disk. RAM drives dramatically increase BEX's speed. At the Master Level, you can also create automated scripts, control input and output on the fly, and use the sophisticated contextual search-and-replace to program with characters.

We hope that dividing BEX into three Levels makes your computer learning an easy and pleasant experience. We're sure that you can become a proficient BEX Master, working at a pace that's comfortable for you.

Sorting Through the BEX Materials

Probably the most important piece of paper in your BEX package is the Customer Registration Card. Once you have filled out and returned this card, we will be happy to provide you with technical support. We urge you to fill out and return the card now.

Your BEX package includes several manuals:

The Learner, User, and Master Levels explain how to use BEX. The Interface Guide gives detailed instructions for connecting voice and braille devices to your Apple. However, the Interface Guide does not duplicate basic information about your Apple found in the Owners Manual that came with your computer.

The Appendices cover a wealth of topics: Appendix 6, the Glossary can answer your questions about the meanings of computer terms. When you need to know how a particular function works, check Appendix 7, the Index. Appendix 5, the Resources List, provides names and addresses for computer-related manuals and periodicals that are published in braille, large print, or on audio cassette.

You also receive two booklets containing summaries of BEX commands, which we call Reference Cards. The Quick Reference Card summarizes the options available at the Learner Level. The Thick Reference Card provides a summary of every BEX activity available at the User and Master Level.

Your BEX package contains four double-sided or flippy disks.

Raised Dot Computing publishes the monthly RDC Newsletter in audio tape and large print formats. The RDC Newsletter contains articles about new devices, new applications, programming, and other topics. We always publish articles about putting BEX to work. We welcome submissions from everyone. Your BEX purchase includes one year of the RDC Newsletter at no cost.

What To Read Next

We recommend that everyone read Section 1: Before You Turn on the Computer. (Even if you're a "power user," Section 1 explains how to read this manual, and introduces the special terminology that BEX uses.)

Learner Level Section 2: An Exploratory Trip, takes you on a guided tour through the core of BEX.

If you are familiar with the Apple and with word processing, you may be able to skip the rest of the Learner Level and dive right into the User Level. If you do this, however, you may miss out on some of BEX's features. The User Level assumes you've read the Learner Level, so you may find yourself flipping back and forth.
