[BlindMath] Nemeth code

Do you just want to enter the braille cells for Nemeth or do you also want to use a process that converts (back translates) the Nemeth braille to print and/or spoken math?

You can enter the six-dot braille cells either directly with six-key typing or with a full keyboard using a transliteration such as ASCII Braille.

My understanding is that NVDA can't convert braille to speech directly, it has to back translate the braille to print and then convert the print to speech. In the case of print math, the print math has to be in a supported format such as MathML. Back translation requires the use of an appropriate table. I don't know whether NVDA provides such a table for Nemeth braille math or, if it does, how well it works.

Best wishes,
