### Arabic Braille Mathematics

### The Formal Name of the Braille Code

Developed Arabic Braille System 2002 or *tatwir watawhid khati barayil alearabi 2002*.

#### Data Entry Considerations

To use the Arabic mathematics translator, you must use the **math** style in DBT. Depending on your data entry method, this may be done for you. For example, all LaTeX files show the distinction between text and math, and you can scan math equations with Inftyreader (OCR software) to produce your LaTeX file. As DBT imports the LaTeX file into DBT, it applies the **math** style to the technical notation for you, simplifying the process.

The Arabic mathematics translator handles Arabic script, Arabic digits (U+0660-0669), and Persian digits (U+06F0-06F9). These characters can be used in mathematical expressions.

#### Working Directly in DBT

When working directly in DBT, for a section consisting mostly of technical notation, highlight the entire section, press F8 to apply a style and select **math** for the style. If there is a passage of text within that section that would not work well in a math translator, you can apply the style **math-TextInMath** to that passage. Note that both the start and end style markers of **math-TextInMath** must be enclosed within the **math** style. Failure to do so may cause DBT to get lost in the translation (i.e. to do unexpected things).
