Visual Brailler

American Printing House for the Blind, Inc.


Visual Brailler App for iPad®

Works with your Apple® iPad® or iPad mini® running iOS 7® or later! And it's free-of-charge!

Visual Brailler is the simple braille editor! It's a braillewriter for your iPad, and it has a place in every braille transcriber's toolbox. It displays a traditional six-dot keyboard and simulated braille on your iPad screen. You can edit and save your work, which makes Visual Brailler perfect to use for on-the-go practice for NLS certification exercises. Visual Brailler supports any code you wish to use, because it makes no assumptions about what you are writing. Use it to help learn new codes, such as Unified English Braille (UEB), and record your progress.

For transcribers who are blind, Visual Brailler also works with Bluetooth refreshable braille displays with keyboards, such as APH's Refreshabraille 18.
