[brailleblaster] Re: push by john.bo...@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx - the -utd option now works on 2012-05-06 04:32 GMT

Hi Vic,

UTDML (Universal Tactile Document Markup Language) enables handling of 
tactile graphics and synchronization of Braille and print. That is, for 
every line displayed in the Braille view, the Daisy view will contain 
the text from which that line was translated. At this stage in 
development we are updating just the braille view. Updating the Daisy 
view on the left is next.

yes, you can open an xml file and translate it. UTDML files will 
eventually support embossing.
I'll be leaving this afternoon and will be back Tuesday evening. I'll be 
offline from about 4 p.m. today until 7 p.m. Tuesday.

John
