Perky is a computer based Perkins brailler emulator. It is designed to be used for distance education programs, particularly Internet-based situations. It allows Windows and Macintosh users to create electronic braille files on their computer through six key input. These braille files can then be printed, embossed or emailed to an instructor, proctor, etc. for examination and grading. Perky Duck has no translation capabilities and very little formatting -- essentially space bar, back space, and return key. There is no support provided for this free version of Perky Duck.
