[Athen] Brailled Calculus Textbook

We have been working on a number of calc books for other universities. There are probably a million out there. We have at least two pre-calc books in MathML that could easily be turned to Braille, and parts of several Calc books that are also in MathML. When you figure out what the book is, we can compare it to our list and see if we have it. The most recent one we did a ton of was University Calculus by Goldberg, 14th edition. And we are currently working on Calc Early Transcendentals. I wish we had Stewart's Calc 2nd done in MathML, that one is a classic. But we only have pieces of that one, and not very many pieces at that.

Subject: [Athen] Brailled Calculus Textbook

Good morning all,

This may be a long shot, but we have a blind student who is planning on taking Calculus 1 over the summer, and has expressed a preference for having the textbook in Braille, or at the very least the images in tactile. We have reached out to the department chair to get information for production purposes, but I'm wondering if anyone knows of a specific calc. textbook/images that have already been converted that we might be able to suggest as an option for the course to have the fastest turnaround time possible.

Any info you have is greatly appreciated!
