The Braille Primer

The Braille Primer is a comprehensive guide to contracted (Grade 2) braille. It is suitable for those people wanting to learn to write braille or to become transcribers. Sight reading practice is not included.

While the Primer is unsuitable for teaching people to touch read braille, experienced blind or partially sighted braillists may find it useful when teaching sighted learners or checking for rules.

Order the Braille Primer

The Braille Primer comes in clear print (TC20204), large print (TC20395) or braille (TC20183) and is available from our online shop.

There is also Welsh Braille Primer. Please contact RNIB Cymru on 02920 828500 or email [email protected] for more information.
