There are several projects are working on MathML to braille translation.
See
<http://www.w3.org/Math/Software/mathml_software_cat_accessibility.html>
for a list of some of them.  See also www.jjb-software.com for another
(open source) option.

As you probably know, there are many different braille codes, so you
need to decide which code(s) you wish to support. 

Although it can be a valuable experience to start from scratch and write
something of your own, I think a much more valuable real-world
experience is to pick up what someone else has started and add features
to it or otherwise help make is a better solution.  This is what you
will experience most often if you choose to join a software company
after school.

Subject: Questions About function of MathML


Hello, I am a third year Electronic & Electrical Engineering Student at
Imperial College. We are currently doing a group project on a Maths
converor with convert Maths type in to Braille. 
 
As we would like to be able to convert Maths equation and symbols with
different types of input, we are wondering if MathML can reconise maths
equation and symbols on different platform, e.g Microsoft Words, Maple,
html etc, and be able to convert them into a standard self define code. 
 
Regards
 
Jason Chan
