Braille, as you probably know, is a touch system for the sight impaired. It is made up of an alphabet and numerical list of raised dots. There are also symbols and punctuation marks – everything we would find in our own syntax and grammar.
Interestingly, the average speed of reading is reportedly 125 words a minute, but faster speeds are indeed possible. Braille allows people with vision impairments to study and review the written word. It gives people access to a range of reading materials from financial statements to textbooks, menus, and more.
