I'm 100% obsessed with braille.
I regularly test out different types of braille slates, I seek out braille-related apparel and home décor, I read tactile picture books and workbooks for learning braille, and I love finding adapted games in braille.
As a Certified Braille Transcriber, it's important to me that the braille and the educational learning aids are accurate, so I always test things first before I recommend them.
Learning braille should be fun!
Here's a list of some of my favorite things:

*It is difficult locating accurate braille on products.
*Braille for the Sighted by Collins explains an outdated way to write three or more words in all caps. Watch my video for an explanation on how to properly transcribe three or more words in all caps.
*Braille Sudoku by Hua doesn't properly explain how to write a number in braille. I made a video explaining how to write numbers.
