Read Without Seeing

Step 2 of 4: Glue the beans

Decide what you are going to write. Start with something simple, like your name, before trying to write something longer. Use the Braille chart to find the letters you need. Place and glue the beans on the paper in the appropriate pattern to write your name in Braille.
