Liblouis is an open source braille translator and back-translator named in
honor of Louis Braille. It features support for computer and literary
braille, supports contracted and uncontracted translation for many
languages and has support for hyphenation. New languages can easily be
added through tables that support a rule or dictionary based approach.

liblouis. An attacker could crash or potentially execute arbitrary code
using malicious translation tables. (CVE-2014-8184, CVE-2017-13738,
