The reproduction of Braille writing has been, up until now, a purely manual job. To overcome this problem, many researchers have tried to develop a Braille reading machine in some way or another. Their efforts have not given a satisfying solution. The goal of the research described in this text is to develop a system that converts, within acceptable constraints, Braille (image) to a computer readable form (text). Having the text on a computer, a Braille printing house can reproduce it using an electronic Braille embosser
