Dolphin Converter - What is Braille?

Braille is a tactile reading and writing system used by blind and visually impaired people who cannot access print materials.  It uses raised dots to represent the letters of the print alphabet. It also includes symbols to represent punctuation, mathematics and scientific characters, music, computer notation and foreign languages.


When you convert a document into Braille, Dolphin Converter will save the document as a ‘.brl’ file. Blind people are able to read this ‘.brl’ file either as electronic Braille using a Braille Reader or as hardcopy Braille by sending the file to an embosser.
