An ideal Braille transcriber ?

Abstract : Even though a great effort has been made to inform institutions and the general public, having access to digital information is still nowadays a real handicap for visually impaired people. Transcribing heterogeneous contents (scientific idioms, literature, full or contracted braille, music...) is one of the major considerations limiting a braille reader's accessibility to digital documents. Indeed, strict conventions rule differently each type of content, which therefore must be previously and correctly identified. After a quick introduction to the braille transcription issue, this article will develop the different stages in creating an “ideal” transcriber : modeling, conceiving and implementing. This transcriber's main goals are to ease the transcription chain, to be fast enough for a real-time use, and to propose a multiple modal tool, therefore independent of any operating system and providing a polymorphic use.
