EasyConverter 6.02 includes improvements to make it easier to emboss hard copy Braille.

Improved Braille Paper settings

All of EasyConverter's Braille Margin settings are now included in the Braille Paper settings. This means there is one simple settings screen for:

  • Selecting your Braille paper size
  • Selecting how many Braille characters you want embossed per line
  • Selecting how many lines of Braille you want embossed per page
  • Selecting your margins, or how close the Braille is embossed to the edge of the page

New Braille Paper sizes

EasyConverter 6.02 now includes additional Braille paper size options. EasyConverter's Braille paper sizes are now the same as the sizes available in popular Braille embossers, such as Index. Paper sizes include:

Paper size Characters per line Lines per page
A4 Portrait 210 x 297 mm 30 28
A4 Landscape 40 20
A3 Portrait 297 x 420 mm 40 40

A3 Landscape

66 28
Letter 8,5 x 11 inch 30 26
Legal 8,5 x 14 inch 30 34
Ledger 17 x 11 inch 60 26
Tabloid 11 x 17 inch 40 43
11,5 x 11 inch 42 26
11 x 12 inch 40 29
8,5 x 12 inch 30 29


With EasyConverter 6.02, you can also change the Braille characters per line and the lines per page without changing the paper size. If you select too many characters per line or lines per page for the currently selected paper size, the paper size drop down box will become blank and you will be required to re-select your paper size.
