[Blindmath] TransBraille Software

I don't think it was ever intended for TransBraille to be used to convert 
embossed braille by persons who can't see well enough to spot errors 
visually.  TransBraille is to my knowledge the only software that attempts 
to convert embossed braille to electronic form when the braille has been 
produced on a Perkins and has smudges or other extraneous marks and/or the 
lines aren't completely straight.  However, this is a very difficult process 
and the result typically requires some corrections to be made visually.

However, I believe that once your students start using a braille keyboard to 
produce electronic braille math as ASCII code (which in my opinion they 
should do as soon as possible) then they can use the conversion to print 
feature of the Full TransBraille system to turn their braille into print.
