Braille output from OpenOffice.org is the SourceForge project of the month
By Peter Korn on Apr 01, 2011
Under the aegis of the AEGIS project (hard to resist that pun), the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven developed odt2braille, the open source extension to OpenOffice.org (and Oracle Open Office and also LibreOffice) that turns Writer documents into braille. And today, Sourceforge picked odt2braille as its open source project of the month (read an interview about it here).
Congratulations to Bert Frees and Christophe Strobbe and the folks at Katholieke Universiteit Leuven for their work on this excellent extension. If you already have OpenOffice.org (or Oracle Open Office) you can get the extension directly from the OpenOffice.org extensions website.
