The Raster® Method is a patented process. To use this method of Braille on signs, you must be licensed. The Raster® Pen Kit includes a license to use the patented techniques and devices. Raster® Braille supplies have been designed to work in harmony with each other. If you use any other braille products in combination with the Raster® Braille system, you are bound to experience problems since they were not designed to work together. As long as you use Raster® Braille Cutters, Raster® Spheres, and the Raster® Braille Pen, you should be successful in creating Raster® Braille signage.
The Raster® Method of Braille is compatible with all computerized routers/engravers equipped with Grade 2 Braille translation software. The engraving software must have the ability to support a Braille font that utilizes a single-point drill function.
If you don’t have Grade 2 Braille translation software, this can be purchased as add-on software from Duxbury Systems, Inc. or from your engraving machine manufacturer. (If you are currently making routed-out Braille, then you probably already have Grade 2 Braille translation software).
