Utilizing Braille Technology to Assist In the Transition to Unified English Braille Greg Stilson, HumanWare Product Manager, Blindness Products greg.stilson@humanware.com As the United States prepares to officially make the switch to the Unified English Braille (UEB) code, teachers across the country have already started to implement this transition with their students and the technology that they use. When the official switch date was announced as January 2016, many teachers and students immediately began searching for reference materials, guides and tutorials to support this transition.
