An Introduction To Arabic Braille, Tuesday 18 June at 7:30 PM

This session, presented by Saima Akhtar, is designed to give you a Whistlestop tour of the fundamentals of Arabic braille. Rest assured, it’s not nearly as complicated as you think. By the end of the session, you will have more insight into the following areas:

  • The origins of Arabic braille.
  • Common misconceptions around the structure and layout of Arabic braille.
  • How the Arabic alphabet is constructed. (Here we will tackle the puzzling conundrum surrounding how to identify consonants and vowels.)
  • Next steps for anybody looking to learn more after the session.

Please note, it will be much easier to follow along if you have a grasp of grade one English braille as I will be referring to similarities between English and Arabic braille throughout the session.
