It can't explain, but if the "image" really is a scanned text, it can do OCR on it and present it on a Braille line.

OCR tends to be far from perfect, and will do a lot of mistakes (although by use of a dictionary, it will often guess the right interpretatio of a fuzzy image), but you'd be surprised how tolerant visually handicapped people are to errors, and how easily they learn which are the "common" mistakes, using their "mental dictionary" to deterine the actual word. The text must be really garbled before they give up (and probably the OCR gives up a lot earlier...).
