Mirror Image!!

Great app super simple and user friendly. One request. In order to actually communicate with a sight impaired individual. It would be helpful, for learners who do not have a Braille printer, to see their work in mirror image that can be used with a slate to print out the message for a sight impaired individual.

I love to send Braille

I really enjoy sending Braille to my friends and family through text message and other means using this app. However, I am studying to be a transcriptionist and I find it extremely frustrating that there is no way to do contracted braille on my messages. A way to change the keyboard to a six key method would be extremely helpful.
