Braille rendering of Unicode [OT 50%]

Date: Wed Aug 09 2000 - 14:18:29 EDT

In the next few years, most or all electronic texts (including web pages and
e-mail) will be in Unicode. I was wandering: how about blind people? What
will a braille display do when presented with multilingual text?

Does anyone know of projects for defining a general "braille rendering" of
arbitrary Unicode text?

It must be a fascinating beast, if it exist. I imagine multiplying by 1000
the complexity of displaying "visible" Unicode...
