The electronic text (E-text) consists of converting a printed or scanned document into an electronic format and adding tags in order to make it readable by a tactile Braille display or speech synthesis.
This type of file is suitable for blind people, for those who have low vision, a learning disability, or a motor problem.
When creating an electronic text, the content of each page is accurately reproduced and the pagination is always identical to the original document. However, all underlines, unnecessary spaces and returns, headers, and footers (which are superfluous or redundant for the user) are omitted. Tables, pictures and figures are adapted, described or omitted, depending on their relevance. All errors appearing in the original version are reproduced. A presentation page precedes any document.
