hmmmm, would be nice to be able to export braille text into .stl format.
And then print them in a 3D printer

Braille labels...

Hi Pranav,

I may have a severely deficient understanding of how Braille works on computers, one of the other suggestions might yield better results :)

Hi Chris,

I want to create Braille labels in Inkscape and label tactile diagrams in Braille. How should I do this assuming I have a Braille font?

I think you have an extra braille font installed. If that's the case, you can send it to other people to install (might be scary thing for them) or, you can simply convert the text objects to a path (Path>Object to Path), which renders the font to an svg path for you - I do this whenever I have bizarre fonts and I need to make the svg portable.  Please note that once you convert to path, you'll not be able to edit the text with the text tool.
