Very similar to the BrailleBox, this compact wooden board lets you easily create Braille characters by simply inserting metal pegs into the holes. But because each Braille cell made on the BrailleIt Board is just a bit larger than a regular paper Braille cell, you can create thirty separate Braille characters on this board all at once. (Yes, that's three rows of ten cells!) And no, you'll never run out of "dots": the unit ships with 180 metal pegs - which can be held in place by fastening the lid closed once you've finished your Braille practice for the day.
Because students have so much room to spell out entire sentences on the BrailleIt Board, this device quickly becomes a favorite Braille learning tool. And since they'll be putting each Braille cell together dot-by-dot, this brand-new invention is a marvellous way to help Braille learners remember the dot formations of each character!
