How does one go about typesetting math books in braille with all parenthesized subscripts and superscripts and are there braille signs for the amsmath package special symbols?

    i don't know the answer to this, but there is a quite good blog post entitled "Nemeth Braille Alphanumerics and Unicode Math Alphanumerics" by the microsoft development engineer who i worked with in adding (thousands of) math symbols to unicode. his conclusion is that 12-dot braille would be required to distinguish all the symbols identified for math, and that would be "really hard to learn".

    Maybe relevant, the PreTeXt project has been working on this, see aimath.org/aimnews/braille: "As for the math formulas, they are represented using the Nemeth Braille Code which are produced by MathJax..." Apr 10, 2020 at 5:25

    Typesetting math books in braille requires specialized software and equipment. There are several software programs available, such as Duxbury Braille Translator and BrailleBlaster, that can convert mathematical notation in standard text format to braille. Apr 4, 2023 at 21:57
