Braille Pad Student
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Braille Pad Student is a word processor for Braille. It can handle Unified English Braille (UEB or UEBC), Grade 1 (uncontracted) and Grade 2 (contracted) Braille.
Because this app uses a special braille font, you can email the text to people with no special software .
Braille Pad Pro was designed to be helpful for sighted people working to learn Braille. You can load, edit, save, email, and print files. BraillePad Pro natively supports files in the popular .DXB format. Files can be opened in BraillePad Pro directly from web links or from your email. There are many resources on the web that have complete Braille books that you can download for free directly into the app.
We have included an in-app dictionary that allows you to look up the Braille letters, numbers, symbols, and contractions by English or by Braille. This is NOT a dictionary of every word in English converted to Braille, rather it is a complete listing of the symbols and combinations of symbols you may find in a Grade 2 Braille document. The dictionary shows each of the multiple meanings where applicable (see screen shot for example). The dictionary currently does not support UEBC, if you have interest in seeing this added, please drop us an email.
What's New in Version 1.05
The Is A Fantastic App
This app gives you an inexpensive way to communicate with low vision or blind friends and family. It also can help you practice your braille writing and spelling if you are attempting to learn braille. I am still learning braille and this app has been quite helpful in allowing me to practice my writing. It is worth the cost.
Useful for beginners
This is useful for beginners in practicing Braille and formatting it visually. I can send Braille text to my apple products and emails without a BARD account. However the font does not transfer to PC computers' emails just yet. I can save files in Braille with the student version.
This is a great app! I like the fact that I can save my work. Also send my work to my instructor. Thanks
