I can give you a little information.  The plan is to move to something called Unified English Braille.  For those of us who read braille, it is pretty easy to read.  
Besides the fact that other English speaking countries are moving toward this system, it has some advantages over the existing system.  Some aspects of 
change will not be easy, though.  However, it should make it easier to get good braille translations from electronic texts, for one thing.  

The web site for BANA is


and there are links about Unified English Braille or UEB there.

Best regards,

Braille Authority, and another question who is the Braille Authority and who made them an Authority?
