Hi, Laura Ann,

I'm not blind. But my husband noticed that the Mac is
coming out, or has, with accessibility for the blind.
I did some research, and there's an NFB trans 7.74 for
the Mac, URL 

"NFBTRANS is a Grade Two braille translator.
NFBtrans translates text files to braille or braille
files to text in both English and Spanish.

The program converts ascii text into braille and sends
the result to a file or an embossor. Special
formatting commands may be placed in the text to
customize the output.
NFBtrans is free and can be downloaded as an installer
package or as source code.

NFBtrans was developed by the National Federation of
the Blind."

and also a Duxbury braille translator  URL

Also, apparently there is or will soon be a new Daisy
player for the Mac. 

And there's something called Read and Write Gold for
the Mac. URL: 

I think a couple of people on the list here use the
Mac. HOpefully they can give you more info.
