In January BrailleTouch from the University of Georgia was launched. Now there are two and more. The newest addition to the family is called MBraille.

I started writing this post with it but it mysteriously disappeared from Blogsy on my iPad. But nonetheless, I am writing here now on my Mac.

Good Things:

  • Supports Grade II, contracted Braille unlike BrailleTouch.
  • Can do more things than braille touch and is a bit tidier in terms of menus
  • Can do editing tasks

The bad:

  • Very frustrating to learn — dots ove around in strange ways without one realising it.
  • So, not so good for people with hand issues.
  • Says strange things when contractions are entered. Very verbose.
