The National Braille Press has a Nemeth code reference sheet which summarizes the code.

I would start with Nemeth Braille  first. That is what you are going to see most books written in. Nemeth Braille is a dying language but a good book to learn this code is “The Nemeth Braille Code for Mathmatics and Science Notation 1972 Revision” with a 2007 update. It is available for download in various formats from http://www.brailleauthority.org/. I think that UEB has been in use for only about 15 years, and is intended to replace Nemeth.
Hope this helps,
Mac David

I can read both contracted, and I’m contracted braille.. my question is: should I learn Nemeth or UEB math? I definitely love to learn both, but I’d like to learn one of them fully before doing the other. Which one is the better one? Which one is more efficient, and which one is more common in the United States.?
