JITP is publishing an issue on accessibility, and one of our editors has requested that we add a Braille translation plugin developed by UMD-MITH, linked below.

Sure, I'm glad to take a look at it.
Matt - The Braille library requires an external library called "liblouis" for translating to and from Braille. It's possible to install the library locally, or on a separate server. Installing locally will require signoff and assistance from IT. I don't have a problem working with them if you think that's the best way to go. Otherwise, it might be more frictionless to set up the service ourselves on some other server. Do you ("you" being, I guess, the Digital Scholarship Lab?) have servers where we might put it?

- Status changed from New to Resolved
- Assignee changed from Matt Gold to Boone Gorges
- Target version changed from Future release to 1.8.17
OK, this should be ready to go.
- Braille plugin installed in https://github.com/cuny-academic-commons/cac/commit/7a3f3bc2fd6ca057396728769f01d0b0cadcd71d
- In https://github.com/cuny-academic-commons/cac/commit/115f01aff5d536952a4adcfac60097167f975848, I hardcoded some overrides for the plugin settings. This way, users don't have to configure the remote URL for the liblouis service.
- liblouis service available at http://ec2-54-158-169-172.compute-1.amazonaws.com/braille.json
This'll be live in the 1.8.17 release.
