Braille is a tactile reading system that consists of a series of 6 raised dots evenly arranged in quadrangular letter spaces or cells. The configuration of dots can be read with the fingertips by people who have a visual impairment. Braille can be contracted or uncontracted, in either Unified English Braille (UEB) or English Braille, American Edition (EBAE). AIM-VA braille materials are provided by the Department for the Blind and Vision Impaired (DBVI).
