^xlit}- =!bl

Grade 3 braille is a densely contracted form of English braille. It is the mission of this web-site to encourage the proliferation of this braille code.

Grade 3 braille is an efficient and empowering tool for literate braille readers. Here you will find electronic materials in grade 3 braille as well as clear explanations of all the rules and contractions. Translation software is being developed.

Note: Contracted braille is represented on this site by ASCII characters. If you are using a refreshable braille display, you will need to turn off any braille translation in your screen reader to view the grade 3 braille properly. There is a chart of the ASCII characters and their braille dot patterns here.
