AFB Celebrates 200 Years of Braille!

When you first look at something written in braille, all you see (or feel) is a jumble of dots! However, like any other code, braille is based on a logical system. Once you understand it, you'll be able to read and write braille easily. That's because braille is not a language, it's just another way to read and write English (or any other language, such as Japanese). Learn more in "Braille: Deciphering the Code" and check out the other links below.
