Free booklet introduces braille readers to Unified English Braille

Date Posted: 10/16/2014

The Braille Authority of North America (BANA) recently published a resource to help current braille readers become more familiar with Unified English Braille (UEB) and to assist braille readers, transcribers, teachers, and families as they make the transition to UEB. The UEB Reader, a resource designed to introduce braille readers to UEB, incorporates into one document several key resources found on the BANA website. The UEB Reader includes content from BANA's publication, Overview of Changes from Current Literary Braille to UEB, as well as several example documents transcribed into UEB for readers to use as practice. The hardcopy braille booklet is available free of charge.
