Sight-Reading Braille Modules

The Sight-Reading Braille modules are designed to teach the basics of sight-reading braille. There are six parts which teach the braille alphabet, capitalization, basic punctuation, and numbers.

Braille proficiency represents competency, independence, and equality for students who are blind and have low vision. When parents, teachers, and even peers learn to sight-read braille it provides an added level of support to these students.

These modules are designed for students and adults who want to learn to sight-read braille.

The six braille modules are designed to be completed in order:

  1. Braille Characters a-j
  2. Braille Characters k-t
  3. Braille Characters u-z
  4. Braille Capitalization
  5. Braille Punctuation
  6. Braille Numbers

You will need to use a standard keyboard for these modules. You CANNOT use a smartphone or tablet, unless you have an external keyboard for your tablet. Some exercises include a braille simulator app which requires a standard keyboard to type the braille characters.

To access the modules, simply create a free eLearner account with DCMP. If you're already a DCMP member, you can use your existing account to log in. eLearner account holders can access the modules but not DCMP media.

After you create an eLearner account, go to your eLearner Dashboard. There you’ll find a list of modules you can start. You can also return to modules you have in progress.
