  1. I just wanted to comment regarding the use of interpoint braille. As a life-long braille reader, I can equivocally say that reading interpoint braille is no more difficult than single sided braille, when of course produced in the right way. A page produced on an embosser designed for that purpose versus a double sided page coming from a Perkins gives you two completely different results. I can attest though that visually it is nearly impossible to read interpoint braille. I fondly remember challenging my braillist to follow along as I read a standard double sided novel, which, like print, is standard in leisure reading materials.


    1. Hi Patricia,
      Thanks for commenting – we appreciate it when listeners let us know their thoughts on the topics we present.
      Your point on Interpoint and quality is very true. Though I am not a fluent braille reader, I know quality makes all the difference.
      Thanks for listening!
