Introduction to Braille Writing Frames

This session will be a practical introduction on using a hand frame (also known as a slate and stylus).

We will cover inserting the paper, holding the stylus and writing some characters, as well as some basic types of frame and where to get them.

Please come prepared with your frame, stylus and paper.

Questions welcome.

If you don’t have a slate and stylus, you can get one through the free equipment the Braillists is giving out.

We hope to see many braille enthusiasts and look forward to learning together.

The event will take place on Zoom and will be led by James Bowden, braille technical officer, RNIB.
