Is there a braille equivalent to every word that you are translating? If there is, then you could simply create a 'lookup table' to do the translation.

Umm... just occured to me... how are the people going to 'touch' the screen in order to 'read' Braille? duh...?

In my opinion the problem is not to translate text to Braille. The big trouble is how to print it for the blind people without having an expensive braille printer... I wrote a very simple program (using memo components) to translate written text ro an equivalent form of braille, using a public domain truetype font. It is not perfect but availbale if you want to have it.

best wishes,
