Hmmm, that sounds an interesting idea for people like myself who learnt graide two braille at the same time they learnt to read.

I suspect I'd need a check list to consult, but whether the Grade three braille starts being produced over here I'm not sure.


Besides, I must confess now that portable audio formats are so much easier than lumping a tape recorder around, I do generally read in audio. i have read books in braille but though I have recently heard of a bar code reading device which sounded rather promising in this respect.

Beware the Grue!

Dark.more as a method to get access to certain titles I wouldn't get otherwise than by choice.

~saying that though, i stil! happen to think that braille is the best way of labling cds, computer games, dvds, cooke appliences etc, that I've found.

Hi Lori,
Yep. Sure is. It has been around for a few years, but grade 2 is stil
the standard for most braille publications because many braille users
haven't updated their braille skills  and still are not aware of the
new braille contractions. However, grade 3 is now being taught to new
braille students, and builds upon grade 2. I'm not familiar with all
the new braille contractions myself but one I remember from my brief
course was the chch contraction for church and a couple of others like
that. No big deal really, but would throw you off if you were reading
along and saw them in a book or magazine. Actually, I did see a couple
of magazines that use grade 3 braille and I had to ask someone from
the Vision Center what in heck this contraction was because I didn't
have it in school. Lol!

HTH
