Web Braille

Audio file for WebBraille

This service provides Braille in digital files. It is now part of BARD.

Web Braille books can be located by:

  1. Searching BARD
  2. Use the NLS Quick Search online catalog at: www.loc.gov/nls/web-blnd/advancedsearch.html (opens in a new window)

    Search by author, title, or subject, and in the "annotation, notes, contents" field, type the words web Braille. The results will contain a link to each volume of a web Braille title. When a volume is selected, the user will be prompted for a user ID and password.

  3. Use the online version of Braille Book Review. Issues since 1997 are available at www.loc.gov/nls/bbr (opens in a new window)
Web Braille files are in grade 2 (contracted) Braille ASCII format. Files can be read online or downloaded for viewing off-line or embossing with a Braille display, Braille-aware note taker, or Braille embosser.

Want to know more? The library's website offers complete information about what's available, and instructions on how to use web Braille. The website address is my.ctbl.org. Go to the Web Braille link.
