New braille reader?

We offer braille books for those who are new to reading braille. Beginners often prefer starting with open line spacing. We can also make other adjustments, such as removing capital letters, hyphenation and text highlighting.

Let us know how you'd like the book. Contact us if you need help finding books suitable for your reading level and interests.
