Session Detail





2022 January Braille and Tactile Graphic Boot Camp
January 4-7, 2022



Braille Boot Camp is four days of hands-on, experiential learning focused on the skills you need to produce braille documents and tactile graphics for your students. As an added bonus we now include a session on cleaning and minor repairs of braille writers.


All activities are conducted in small groups or individually. Everyone will have opportunities to create a number of worksheets and tactile graphics to take home as well as instruction manuals and other resources.

Our Activities include:

• A deep dive in the use of Microsoft Word for braille and tactile graphic production.

• Converting files to editable text and understanding file types and extensions.

• Braille Document Production for Literary, Foreign Language, Mathematics and Technical materials.

• Tactile Graphic Production of one-page and multiple-page tactile graphics.

• Creation of Templates for basic shapes and Cartesian coordinate planes.

• Opportunities to work with the hardware and software used for these tasks.

All sessions start at 8:30 am and end at 4:30 pm.

This training has been designed for those who are new to braille production or anyone who needs a refresher. This is an in-person training and attendees are expected to attend all four days.
