DJVU is an image format, so completely inaccessible.

Hi BlindMath mates?
I have a couple of questions.
1. How accessible are the DJVU books on mathematics using JAWS or NVDA?
There are lots of books on mathematics available in either PDF or DJVU, and
a blind person pursuing mathematical sciences would like those materials to
be accessible using the commonly used screen reading programs.

2. There are lots of mathematics books available on Bookshare.org in Daisy
and BRF formats. Can somebody please explain how to open the BRF files using
the Duxbury Braille Translator (DBT) without disturbing the formatting? And,
how best to access the Daisy files using JAWS or NVDA?
