This app is perfect for people who need to learn the Braille alphabet. In includes a review of the Braille alphabet and four activities of increasing difficulty to help become proficient with it. It starts with a 'connect-the-dots' mix & match, then a multiple choice to match a Braille character to a standard letter, followed by a multiple choice drill matching the correct letter to a Braille letter, and finally an activity where you tap the screen to toggle dots in a Braille character to the correct pattern for a letter or digit. All drills can be performed timed or untimed. In the untimed mode all Braille codes are tested once and after completion you have the option to review just those you missed and retest on just those you missed, a very effective learning strategy.
This is so awesome, I am learning Braille to help my 6 year old son who is blind and I was so excited to find apps that help with Braille. This one is definitly the best because it has two things that the others don't, scoring and an empty Braille cell to practice. Thank you so much!!
TWO STARS: The drills are good but it will not advance to the next level without closing the app and start over. I really don't give this a four star but when I put TWO star I can't post they say my nickname is taken and cancel on me.
This is great!
My 10 year old son lost his vision last July. He's been asking me to learn Braille. Using this app on a trip I learned the entire alphabet within hours! Please update with contractions!
