Get Ready to Read and Write UEB  

 

In January, 2016 the Unified English Braille code becomes official in the
United States.  This means that new books and magazines will be produced
using this system.  We will begin to see many other Braille documents in
UEB.  Get a head start on learning UEB by coming to the NFBMD/ACBMD
workshop.
