Hi Penny and Traci,
What apps do your kids like for reading books or other text in Braille on iPads? What works best, and what doesn't work well at all? Just trying to get a snapshot of what kids are liking best these days. Rather than guessing at what options to recommend to others, I'd like to know what is already working for students.
