[liblouis-liblouisxml] Re: LibLouis table for six-dot Esperanto

Hi.

Just following up on this.

Also, if you don't mind my asking, how large is the book that you have
(how many pages)?

Another option may be to scan it.  I have read about optical Braille
recognition software, but I don't know much about it, other than that
it exists.

Thanks again for all your help!

Aaron
