While evaluating a braille answer sheet it is necessary it is touch read,
meaning by finger and not by the the eye or OCR software.
OCR software persay is not 100% correct anyways. By reading Braille by the
eye, one can't make out the correction made. This will certainly not go into
the scribe guidelines, However, this should find place in some Braille usage
I do second that writing an exams in Braille is not a practical way of going
about. However, I cannot agree for it to be taken out as an option. If one
chooses to exercise it, there should be a proper system of dealing with it.

Subject: [AI] exams.
we be proud to use brl. as this the only unique script in the world.
acg. to their accent it can be read by any vc. no such script is available
for sighted except devanagari.
for exams. braillers may be used. computers may be used.
Webel of kolkatta is supplying useful operators. many softwares are
coming up for vc. the brl. recognising softwares r also available for
correction. and even our brl knowing sighted or sightless will evaluate
the brl. answer papers. and even pictorial brl. question papers can also
supplied. subject to the commitment of the teachers either sighted or vc.
I strongly feel sightless must learn Braille like his mothertongue,
then only we respect the great inventor of the script for vc.
