Learn to write Braille - punctuations, alphabets, shorthand words, music in Braille

Braille is a system of raised dots developed by Louis Braille to replace the system of raised, embossed letters that blind people had tried using before Braille was invented.

Reading Braille is much less confusing, and much much faster (for someone who learns it) than trying to identify raised letters.

But Braille is not only for the individual letters and punctuations. There is some single character Braille for commonly used Braille too - for speed reading.


In fact, there is Braille for reading music too. Here is a certified Braille music transcriber


Do you want to quickly type something in Braille. Well, here is a bunch of free websites that have Text to Braille convertors. Some of them accept text copy pasted in a form on their site. Others allow you to upload an entire word or pdf document and get it transcribed.
