Maths and Braille

Steve Maddox described in MSOR Connections Vol 7 No 2 May – July 2007, (PDF download) how the School of Physics and Astronomy at University of Nottingham investigated several ways to produce mathematical Braille from LaTeX files, and chose to use the Duxbury Braille Translator (DBT).  It was not always ideal and the paper discusses some of the issues that arose. 

The video below illustrates Duxbury Braille Translator working with Maths and graphs. 

This video covers the issues discussed above, between 2m17s and 3m4s.
