I'm not sure on exact conversion tools like that.

I never heard of the BRF format before... but blind readers are one of the reasons why I love digitizing print books into ebooks!

You may want to check out DAISY Consortium's website: DAISY.org and DAISY's Youtube channel.

They have a lot of resources for (blind) readers + digitizing and making fully Accessible books.

Side Note: Just last month I ran across this fantastic Reddit post:

where a blind user, coarsing_batch, described the switch over to "Universal English Braille" in 2016.

He also linked over to the AFB (American Foundation for the Blind).

Maybe they will have some other helpful resources for you too.
