- We took a piece of paper and wrote out the words we wanted in Braille.
- I made a template of the six dots used in the Braille system.
- Sir N used the book to tell me where the dots needed to be for each letter using the place value of 1-6 for each dot to tell me.
- We then turned the page over on the window and used a sharp needle to puncture the braille for us to feel.
- A Braille Doll to help children learn the system
- Reading about the display and feeling braille
- This lady developed a machine to print braille on both sides of the page making books that used less paper and fitted into libraries easier.
- The entrance
- In 1920 the metal plate to the right was what was used for maths. The wooden square with the eight sided star denoted different numerals. Pins were fitted into the star shape and depending on it's position it denoted a different value.
- Looking at items used by the blind.
- This is a braille keyring used to learn braille. It is the next step from the doll. From here the wooden case with metal braille letters is used to learn to 'read' braille.
- Braille type writter.
I was visiting Betsy from the Notebooking Nook who shared this video of her daughter using ASL. It was a blessing to watch and an inspiration.
