Summary

The TEX/LATEX typesetting system is the most widespread system for creating documents in Mathematics and Science. However, no reliable tool exists to this day for automatically transcribing documents from the above formats into Braille code. Thus, blind students that study related fields do not have access to the bulk of studying materials available in LATEX format. We develop a tool, named latex2nemeth, for transcribing directly LATEX documents to Nemeth Braille, thus facilitating the access of students with blindness to Science.
