Learn the Braille Alphabet

You've probably noticed those little braille dots on signs in public buildings. But have you ever wondered how those little dots can open up an entire literary world? Stop by as we offer some shortcuts to understanding braille. The braille alphabet is used by people who are blind or visually impaired as a basis of the larger braille code for reading and writing. Blind kids and adults read braille by gliding their fingertips over the lines of embossed braille dots and write braille using a variety of tools. People who are sighted can learn braille as well, either by touch or using their vision.
