Braille is a tactile writing language which is made up using a series of six raised dots. It enables blind and partially sighted people to read and access information using their sense of touch. There are three forms of Braille, contracted Braille (Grade 2) which has abreviations for certain letter combinations, uncontracted Braille (Grade 1) which is a simpler form of braille with each letter written separately, and united English braille UEB which aims to bring together the 2 previous braille standards as well as become the standard form of braille in English speaking countries across the world.
