PocketBraille Reference now supports one symbol word contractions and one-letter word contractions. We will have more contractions soon to help users learn grade 2 Braille. Keep checking back for more details and future updates We will also be including Computer Braille and Nemeth Braille at a later point in time.


Braille is the way people who are blind and visually impaired read and write. PocketBraille Reference is an application for the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad that allows anyone to learn Braille.


PocketBraille Reference allows its user to look at several different Braille tables. These tables include the alphabet, numbers, and punctuation. These tables also make up the Literary Braille section of the application. Additional Braille codes will be added soon, available as updates rom the App Store. These will include Nemeth Math, Computer Braille, Grade 2 Braille, and even Braille Music. PocketBraille Reference also gives users a summary of the history of the Braille code. PocketBraille Reference also is compatible with all VoiceOver compatibile refreshable Braille displays for visual and tactile training. Make sure your Braille display is paired and that VoiceOver is on to use this feature.

Most complete I've found

This is the only app I've found with contractions. It makes for a nice quick reference for single cell contractions. Plus it has the numbers, alphabet, and some punctuation. I hope they will continue to add to the contractions they have.

gggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhjhjjj ,

Help pls

This was a wonderful program, but my I phone says it needs to be updated to work with iOS 11. Is it possible that you could upgrade this program.
Thanks in advance
