[Blindmath] LaTeX to Braille

HI Calvin,

Firstly, thank you very much for being proactive and helping your student
access materials this far ahead of the start of the school year. I, and I'm
sure many others on this list, were left on our own to find materials, so
your question is both refreshing and encouraging.

To be of some assistance to you, does the student have access to the Duxbury
Braille Translator? Opening LaTeX files in Duxbury, translating them to
Braille (brf format) produces reliable math Braille. That might not be the
only way, but I hope it helps somewhat.

Dear all,

does anyone know of a means of converting tex (LaTeX) files into a braille
output? A blind student will be joining the University soon to study
Mathematics and I need a means of ensuring access to our materials for them.

Many thanks in advance.
