Re: helping out the community

BrailleBlaster is a desktop application written in Java that uses the 
liblouis and liblouisutdml libraries, which are written in C, to produce 
properly translated and formatted braille in many languages and braille 
codes. it has special features for math and graphics. By design, it is 
friendly to both blind and sighted users, to both beginners and advanced 
users. It supports many embossers and braille displays. Development is 
still in the early stages.
