Latex2Nemeth: A Latex to Nemeth direct transcriber. Requires Java 1.7 or newer. Usage: latex2nemeth [options] texFile auxFile Options: -e,--encoding <arg> The encoding table for Braille Mathematical symbols in the form of a JSON file. If not specified, default Nemeth table is used. -m,--mode <arg> The mode of the parser which controls the type of the output Braille files. It can be either 'nemeth' or 'pef'. The default mode is nemeth. -o <arg> The output prefix of the Braille files. It can also be prefixed with a path to a specific directory. The default value is the name of the TeX file. The program generates an output file for each chapter in the input TeX file. Usage examples: A simple example: latex2nemeth examples/mathtest.tex examples/mathtest.aux A more complicated example: latex2nemeth examples/mathtest.tex examples/mathtest.aux -o examples/ch -m nemeth -e examples/nemeth.json An example with pictures: latex2nemeth examples/mathpics.tex examples/mathpics.aux Notes: 1. Input tex files must be in utf-8. If using another encoding (such as iso-8859-7) run first LaTeX to produce the aux file and then convert the source.tex to utf-8 with a command such as iconv -f iso8859-7 -t utf-8 source.tex > source-utf8.tex or using your editor. Now run latex2nemeth as above with source-utf8.tex as the tex file and source.aux as the aux file. If errors are produced you need to modify the source-utf8.tex at the line indicated. Usually the errors have to do either with non supported shortcuts for macros (in which case replace the shortcut with the true code) or with macros that are irrelevant to the blind (in which case remove them). 2. Braille/Nemeth output files are encoded in UTF-16. Convert them to utf-8 with a command such as iconv -f utf-16 -t utf-8 source.nemeth > source-utf8.nemeth (This step will be eliminated in future releases and the output will be directly in utf-8.) 3. To emboss the output open the produced source-utf8.nemeth in LibreOffice with the odt2braille plugin installed, open it as "Unicode UTF-8 encoded text" and emboss as usually. 4. Pictures are exported separately in text files. Currently only pstricks pictures are supported.
