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". – barbara beeton Sep 3 '16 at 21:33
  • I love these resources, and don't want to be complacent, but I think learning Braille by touch rather than by memorizing the pin positions by eyesight and then feeling out the pins might lead to a different experience. But before this one must at least be able to configure their phone or tablet and their braille device properly, and Android doesn't seem to do this yet, which is frustrating . – Jack Maddington Sep 13 '16 at 10:55
  • I have bookmarked your comments, and promise to return to them once I get my hands on a Braille enabled device that works properly our at least a voice powered device which is friendly from a (blind) accessibility perspective. – Jack Maddington Sep 13 '16 at 11:00
