Yes, I though that there was something like that possibilities,  but
It's an eavy solution, vith a lot of brace, witch is not very usefull
for blind people.
An other exemple, my friend was surprised that we used braces after a
\times command. Since 2/3, for exemple mean that there's three notes
after, in braille music they don't put braces, they know that the three
notes after the command are for the times.
Of course, in this case of \times command it's more readable with the
braces, eaven if we use color-syntaxing editor (that remember me that I
don't tried the vim one since long time, so I work without color-syntax
:o)
