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 package takes the tags and prints out corresponding Braille symbols.
