    RoboBraille converts plain text and HTML (encoded in the "standard
    Windows character set") to Braille via email.

    Great idea, unfortunately, not a whisper of Unicode :-(

    According to the RoboBraille site
    it converts to "OctoBraille 1252, a Braille adaptation of the standard
    Windows character set used in Western Europe developed by Synscenter
    Refsnæs ( 1252.doc)".

    Looks like there is still a long way to go in popularising Unicode.
