DO IT YOURSELF PURPOSE: To enable an individual doing braille transcription to accurately correct an error while the document is still in the brailler. Place a fresh sheet of braille paper in the braille writer and space to the center of the line, approximately at cell 22 or 23. Write the braille letter "x" and follow it with a space, then type the braille letter "y." Press keys one and three with the left hand and simultaneously using a permanent ink pen to draw a vertical line or dot on the side of the embosser head at the placement of the four and six dots in the letter "x," which is on the left. This step is then repeated with the four and six keys to mark the right side of the embosser head with vertical lines or dots that correspond to the one and three dots of the letter "y" to the right. This process creates a corrction template. To correct an errot, erase the cell or cells to be corrected and insert the page into the braille writer. Do not set the line. Roll the paper to the line containing the error and move the embosser head to the site of the error. Use the marks on the embosser head to allign it with the cells adjacent to the cells to be corrected. When the correction is made, the new braille should be in the appropriate position.
