In this short paper we will announce the targets and the way of accomplishing the tasks in our current project ?MathInBraille?. 60 years since the invention of the computer and after 30 years of successful use of Braille display and speech output, there are still difficulties for blind and visually impaired persons to access scientific documents or school books containing mathematical formulae. The main reason for these difficulties lies in the visual 2D character of the mathematical presentation that is in conflict with the linear nature of Braille and speech output. The existence of many different, language bound mathematical Braille codes is also a barrier for an universal Braille access to science. MathInBraille project wants to contribute to overcoming this part of the digital divide by offering an online portal for converting eDocuments with mathematical contents into Braille and speech formats. The main target groups of the project are blind and visually impaired pupils, students and other persons interested in school and/or scientific materials containing mathematics.
The paper outlines the plan of setting up a portal for conversion of mathematic formula and documents into well defined math notations for blind readers. It will outline the plans and the workflow of the portal.
