Consider addition of property(ies) to expose braille string #765
A couple of use cases have come up in which it would be desirable to give assistive technologies braille strings which they could display as-is:
With respect to the former, we created
With respect to the latter, there are tools which can produce a spoken representation of math expressions. Assistive technologies which can take advantage of such a tool can pass the string along to be spoken. But that spoken representation is likely not what should be displayed in braille. Hypothetically, such a tool could also provide a Nemeth string which should be similarly passed along unmodified. But there's no standard means to expose this information to assistive technologies.

For a given expression, authoring tools might want to produce multiple representations of that expression, for example a spoken representation, a Nemeth Braille representation, a UEB Braille representation and a (plain) braille representation (particularly useful for users that know Braille but may still be learning Nemeth Braille). Having a mechanism to author this would be very useful.
