In addition to both ordinary and special composition codes (paragraph, subsection, number) you have many more editorial control codes than for ordinary texts. Most of the composition codes and the editorial ones cannot be translated automatically into equivalent braille codes. The Danish experience, so far, is that such texts and for textbooks in general, the required lay-out in print as in braille is the greatest obstacle for an automatic production from compositors tapes.

I am thinking here of a double row of 2 X 40 symbols. And yet, the essential overall view of the individual parts of the data presented is lost to the blind user. Furthemore, there is the difficulty of reading columns of numbers.
