## Braille Languages and Braille Mathematics

Your first step is to become aware of any language and braille code issues. Knowing what language, what math translator (and what type of translator) you are working with may be important.

### Data Entry of Inkprint Technical Notation

- Data entry methods and tools including Mathtype and Scientific Notebook.
- Chemical Structure Diagram entry using MS Word

### Producing Braille Mathematics from Inkprint Math

- Using UEB Braille Mathematics with UEB Literary Braille (in the United States and all English-speaking nations).
- Using Nemeth Code Braille Mathematics with UEB Literary Braille (in the United States only).
- Arabic Braille Mathematics with Arabic Literary Braille (in the Arabic-speaking nations).
- British pre-UEB Mathematics (used in a few places in Africa and Asia).
- French Braille Mathematics with French Literary Braille (in French-speaking nations).
- German Braille Mathematics with German Literary Braille (in German-speaking nations).
- Greek Braille Mathematics with Greek Literary Braille (a light variation on Nemeth code only used in Greece).
- Russian Braille Mathematics with various Literary Braille Systems (in many nations historically influenced by Russia).
- Spanish/Portuguese Braille Mathematics with either Spanish or Portuguese Literary Braille (in Spanish-speaking and Portuguese nations).

### Producing Inkprint Mathematics from Braille Math

Translating mathematics braille to inkprint allows a blind student to prepare homework for a sighted teacher.
