Braille Alphabet Card

This is a visual representation of the braille alphabet without contractions. To conserve space and increase reading speeds, the braille code contains 189 contractions. You can download the alphabet card as a PDF file.

Braille is the system of six raised dots created in 1821 by French schoolboy Louis Braille. It is the only medium through which children with profound or total loss of sight can learn to read and write. National Braille Press and supporters of literacy for blind people throughout the world celebrated the bicentennial of Louis Braille's birth in 2009.
