Writing Braille

Our aluminum Braille slates start at just $7, and come with a matching stylus. Braille writers and other tools for making books can also be found here.

Well, once you've learned to read Braille, the next step is to start writing it, right? What you need now is a slate and stylus, which is the blind person's equivalent to a pen or pencil.

Basically, you just snap a piece of Braille paper into your slate (think of it as a Braille writing frame). Then, using a stylus (which comes with any of the below slates), you punch holes (dots) in the paper to form Braille cells.

Remember, in addition to the letter-writing slates we're about to show you, we also carry a complete line of Pocket Slates which you can use to write on smaller sizes of paper. Covering index cards and postcards, labeling tape, business cards and even playing cards, this extra selection of small, portable slates is worth checking out.

With your favorite slate, it's important to have just the right stylus. As we already mentioned, each of our slates comes with a standard plastic stylus. For added comfort and practicality, however, you may want to skim through our selection of Extra Styluses to find your favorite one.
