Introducing UEB Online
UEB Online is a training program for sighted people to learn Unified English Braille (UEB). Unified English Braille has been adopted by many countries and replaces standard english braille. This program is the first online UEB training tool. The program is suitable for classroom and specialist teachers, parents, teacher aides and other professionals supporting children and adults with vision impairment.
This program has been created by the Royal Institute for Deaf and Blind Children’s Renwick Centre. We acknowledge the support and permission from the Round Table on Information Access for People with Print Disabilities and Australian Braille Authority for the adaptation of content from the Unified English Braille: Australian Training Manual, 2013 (edited by Howse, J., Riessen, K., & Holloway, L.).
I am presently taking this online class. I like to get the jump on knowledge so I can teach my students along the way to keep updated with braille in general. This class is excellent, self paced…on either a Mac or PC…learning the new Braille code. I highly recommend this great and easy way to learn. When you finish, get the certification you need….and it is free!
