la­tex2nemeth – Con­vert source to Braille with math in Nemeth

After many failed at­tempts to tran­scribe real math notes and books to Braille/Nemeth in or­der to deal with a real sit­u­a­tion (blind stu­dent in Math Dept.), we de­cided to de­velop a new pro­gram that fol­lows a di­rect, from to Braille/Nemeth, ap­proach. Other at­tempts (such as tex4ht) failed be­cause they all needed an ex­tra step to go from xml to Braille, and this step (say, with li­blouis) pro­duced in­com­pre­hen­si­ble out­put (li­blouis fo­cuses in Of­fice apps).

Our main tar­get was the Greek lan­guage which is only Braille level 1, but English at level 1 is sup­ported as well. Sim­ple pic­tures in PSTricks are also sup­ported in or­der to pro­duce tac­tile graph­ics with spe­cial­ized equip­ment.

Note that em­boss­ing will need Li­breOf­fice and odt2braille as this project does not deal with em­bossers’ drivers.
