Learn and practice contracted braille (Unified English Braille) with Braille Tutor!
Braille Tutor provides an interactive learning experience for a sighted or blind braille learner. It works on iPad using onscreen keys or home keys on a Bluetooth keyboard. It is self-voiced, but also works with iOS accessibility.
The app uses sounds and text-to-speech to support vision-impaired learners. Using a Bluetooth keyboard also gives the user a feel of the keys.
Additional lessons are available as an InApp purchase.
"Great App! :) Very good for consolidating braille skills learned, particularly at home / places where a learner might not have access to a Brailler."
Updated for iOS 11
Ratings and ReviewsSee All
I’ve started using this app and it’s nice practice. I’d like to see some more sentences added, but I agree mostly with another reviewer that it needs a backspace. There have been times where I must not have perfectly touched one of the buttons and it’d show a different letter than what I tried to press. I knew right away it was a mistake, but couldn’t fix it!
Otherwise, really nice. I may purchase the rest of the lessons, we’ll see!
Shows Great potential
This app has a great deal of potential. I have just begun to use it and have not tried it with a braille display as of yet. It is the first app I have seen that teaches and provides drills for contractions. The add on lessons are reasonably priced. I would love to see a "backspace" option. While using the app I made several mistakes and knew it but could not correct my errorrs by erasing. Great start. Looking forward to see what is next.
This app has been my saving grace! I use it at the end of a one-on-one lesson in Braille instruction. This has been super motivational! On a side note, I wanted to get this app on my students’ iPads but can’t find it in the App Store. I will keep looking as this would be helpful in remote learning!
