Documents can contain various types of content, and there is a real need for a high-quality and free, unified braille conversion solution - which is why the Sao Mai Braille (SMB) software was created. In addition to being a rich-text and math editor, SMB is also a professional braille translator, supporting the conversion of: literary text into 137 different language tables; mathematical and chemical content into Nemeth and UEB codes; tactile graphics; and music following the New International Music and Music Braille Code standards. All necessary tools for braille transcription are integrated, such as 6-key Braille input, style management, table types, table of contents, book volume division, and Braille printing, and more. The user interface is available in 36 languages already and is fully accessible with screen readers. This presentation will give an overview of these features to help attendees gain a comprehensive understanding of the Sao Mai Braille software, so they can quickly get started.
