Communicating with embossers has never been easier!
BrailleUtils provides a cross platform Java API for embossing and converting braille in PEF-format. Conversion to and from commonly used "braille" text formats is also supported.
The main purpose of Braille Utils is as part of other software, but it comes with a command line user interface for easy access.
- Emboss PEF-files
- Validate PEF-files
- Convert to/from PEF
- Split/merge PEF-files
PEF is an emerging file format for representing braille books accurately and unambiguously in digital form. Using PEF ensures that the contents of the file is embossed correctly. No braille knowledge is ever required from the operator.
PEF has been been awarded with the Braille21 Award.
