What is Braille?

Braille is the printed language used by blind or partially sighted people.

It uses an alphabet composed of a series of raised dots, which people read using their fingertips.

Braille requires a special printing process. It can be printed onto paper, card, plastic and metal.

When is it useful?

Braille is ideal when you need to provide printed material for blind or partially sighted people.

It is also important that any Braille correspondence you receive is fully understood, so you can reply to it promptly.
