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.
