[Blindmath] Math editing and conversion

Automating the interpretation of a mixture of contracted braille text and
Nemeth math is very difficult as the context clues, while generally obvious
to a human reader, can be quite subtle. I've spent several years off and on
working on free software to do this and hope one day to finish!  

Meanwhile, a currently available solution if you are using a BrailleNote is
to tag the math as computer braille by hand, automatically backtranslate the
text with the built-in backtranslator, and then use the Nemetex software to
automatically convert the embedded math to LaTeX.
You can evaluate Nemetex for free for 30 days.
