braille – Sup­port for braille

This pack­age al­lows the user to pro­duce Braille doc­u­ments on pa­per for the blind with­out know­ing Braille (which can take years to learn). Python scripts grade1.py and grade2.py con­vert or­di­nary text to grade 1 and 2 Braille tags; then, the LaTeX pack­age takes the tags and prints out cor­re­spond­ing Braille sym­bols.
