Inkprint Math to Braille
If you have done the data entry correctly, you should have few problems producing both math and literary braille. If your data entry method was to use LaTeX, there are two issues you should be aware of, first, that graphic images embedded in LaTeX files do not get imported into DBT. (Entering graphics is a separate process from importing LaTeX math.) Second, the focus of the LaTeX importer in DBT is to get the math correct, not to optimize the formatting. Therefore, you may sometimes find that DBT's automatic formatting is a bit simplistic, but the math will be right.
Naturally, DBT's LaTeX importer depends on the LaTeX file being correct (e.g., if you start a square root, you need to end it). If your file has parsing errors, it will not import into DBT.
The subtopics in this section cover all the math braille codes in DBT.
- 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 minor 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).
