Braille Webinars for Families and Others

The Dots for Families blog at Paths to Literacy offers 15 free downloadable PDF or BRF braille lessons that teach sighted people to create cards, labels and other documents for family members or friends who read braille. The lessons offer a beginning knowledge of Unified English Braille by reviewing key points for each lesson and then completing short reading and writing exercises. Connect with Dots for Families. For those who do not have a Perkins Brailler handy to complete the writing lessons, there’s a link to Duxbury’s free Perky Duck a computer program that allows your computer keyboard to simulate a braille writer using the letters sdf = 1,2,3 and jkl = 4,5,6).
