BANA Offers New Publication—The UEB Reader

The Braille Authority of North America (BANA) is pleased to make available The UEB Reader, a resource designed to introduce braille readers to Unified English Braille (UEB). This introductory hardcopy braille booklet incorporates into one document several key resources found on the BANA website. The UEB Reader is available free of charge upon request.

The UEB Reader includes content from BANA’s publication, Overview of Changes from Current Literary Braille to UEB, plus several example documents transcribed in UEB for readers to use as practice. This resource was compiled to help current braille readers become more familiar with UEB and to assist braille readers, transcribers, teachers, and families as they make the transition to UEB.

To receive a free braille copy of The UEB Reader, contact Kim Charlson at kim.charlson@perkins.org with your name and address for mailing purposes. Requests for the UEB Reader including your name, address, and phone number can also be left on the UEB Information Line at 617-972-7248.
