Audio Recordings of Braille Patterns

Australian parents Ruan and Sylvia have created a number of audio voice recordings of braille pattern instructions, which they share online.  Their daughter, Genique, was diagnosed with a brain tumor growing from the optic nerve in 2016 and it has severely limited her vision.  They have found that braille designs help her to practice her braille literacy skills in a fun way.  These audio recordings allow braille users to create the designs themselves, by listening to the directions.

Read the story of their family's journey.

So far they have created the audio directions for five of the braille designs:

  • Flower in a Pot
  • Hello Kitty with Santa Hat
  • Santa Claus
  • Tow Truck
  • Valentine's Heart
