Unified Braille for All Offers Comprehensive Referral Library

June 18, 2012

For Immediate Release…

The Unified Braille for All website is pleased to announce that now we have the most comprehensive set of code books and training on Unified English Braille and the Nemeth Uniform Braille System anywhere in the world. Much of this material has been scattered around the web and available on
request from individual sources. Now, it is all available in one place for easy downloading and use.

“we have known for some time that a huge proboem in evaluating these two approaches for unifying braille codes in the United States is that the materials were scattered all over the United States, and in the case of one code, all over the English-speaking world with little understanding by most of how to get the information” said Chris Gray owner of the UBA website. “Getting this data into one place and one forum was critical for people to begin to study it and understand the implications of each
approach to unification.

All completed and important code documents are available in the Key Downloads Section at http://unifiedbrailleforall.com and we strongly urge you to study this material. It is the contention of UBA Press that if we are to improve braillle, the first step is to understand the approaches to braille unification and then accept the one that supports all readers of braille in the most optimal way possible.

Check out this critically important section of material to begin improving or enhancing your understanding of what braille unification means and how it reads under your fingers. After all, isn’t that the most important factor here?

For Immediate Release

The National Technical Braille Committee is finalizing materials today to present to the Braille Authority of North America (BANA) at its meeting in St. Louis on the afternoon of April 28, 2012.  The committee is composed of educators of the blind, braille proofreaders and technical braille users in the United States.

The committee will provide a series of modules discussing the presentation of technical braille materials for BANA’s consideration.  Focus is on math, science, chemistry and computer braille.  Discussion highlights on differences in Unified English Braille and the Nemeth Code, UEB comparisons to the Nemeth Code, the Nemeth Uniform Braille System, and the need to achieve the right balance if a transition is to occur between the current BANA adopted Computer Braille Code and any new system of unified braille.

The National Technical Braille Committee is dedicated to providing braille readers with a robust, readable system of braille that maximizes learning.  While committee focus is on technical material, the committee also recognizes and strives to preserve an optimal reading medium and environment for all braille readers at every level.
