Computer-Translation: Grade 2 Braille from Print. Final Report.
Schack, Ann; And Others
Two studies of computer production of mathematical texts and musical scores in Braille analyzed production practices and input preparation problems; the studies also reviewed the Nemeth Code of Braille Mathematics and Scientific Notation and the Revised International Manual of Braille Music. Both studies demonstrated automation to be feasible. Additional studies considered means of advancing computer translation of English Braille, including hyphenation, the 1968 program, proofreading, economic factors, and contraction contexts. A program abstract and a discussion of the potential of the IBM 360 series are included; also appended are a mathematical Braille translation system and a computer program to produce musical Braille.
