646

Abstract

In the process of getting higher education in mathematics and informatics students with impaired vision feel dire necessity in specialized literature, printed in Braille. Department of Information Technologies developed a special converting program for creating textbooks for such students. This program uses mathematical text created in LaTeX system as a source material. As the text is processed we get either a mathematical text where all formulas are described in the natural language or a text prepared for subsequent embossed printing.
