Did someone say BRAILLE BITS?

What is Braille Bits did you ask? No worries, I would be happy to shed light on this question. Braille Bits is an introductory class that is flexible and convenient, supportive and structured in providing a fun, tiny size sampling of braille. You may want to call this dot learning experience, an appetizer of braille.

This online program is designed to teach braille to sighted people who have connections with braille readers. For example, teachers and parents are taught through a combination of visual representation of braille dot positions, through lessons, homework and a podcast. Did I mention Podcast? Prepare to be both entertained and delighted by listening to others share their love for braille.

What a thrill it is that this wonderful resource is made available. In addition to this, you are also supported by a mentor to see you through! By completing all 21 Braille Bits Lessons, you will receive an official Braille Bits Certificate of Completion just to say you did it!
