This project is part of the GNU Project.

In the 20 years since the GNU Project's inception we've written and released an impressive body of work. We're not done yet, and we've got some ideas for Free Software programs that still need to be written.

This Savannah project allows us to add these items (that typically don't have their own projects yet) to the Savannah help wanted database where the 25,000+ savannah users (and the public at large) can browse them. This includes items from the old 'GNU Task List' and new ideas that people have submitted. If you are interested in working on one of the tasks posted please contact the Volunteer Coordinators at

2013-01-18 - liblouis seems to fit the need:

* A braille translation and formatting system which can convert marked up documents into braille. This should let the user customize the braille translation rules; it would be good to divide it into a device-independent part plus drivers. Contact Jason White, jasonw@ariel.ucs.unimelb.EDU.AU.
