UEB Quick Reference Sheet

Finger reading braille

This “cheat sheet” was created as a part of the material given out for a workshop at the Canadian UEB Summit 2012. It is not inclusive of all the changes from EBAE to UEB and should not be used alone as the only source of information regarding the transition to UEB.   It is designed to be a quick reference tool that is a handy summary of some of the key differences in UEB (Unified English Braille).

I made a copy of the pdf with simbraille on it. Who should it be sent to?

This UEB Cheat Sheet currently has no SimBraille on it, but we'd love to post it if someone creates it!  Meanwhile, if you'd like the SimBraille and more complete information about the differences between EBAE and UEB see:
