We're glad you've stopped by to check out Arizona's UEB (That's Unified English Braille) information page hosted by the Arizona Braille Consortium. We will work to update this page so please stop back regularly for new information. If you have items you'd like to see added to the page or ideas for the page, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
UEB was adopted in the United States by the Braille Authority of North America (BANA) with the official start date set for January 4, 2016. The BANA web site has many informational items and resources. Be sure to check it often.
View a PRESS RELEASE and share with the media and all others to begin to inform them about UEB. Penny Rosenblum & Jeff Bishop did just that. Read their story in the UANews (June 2, 2015). Dr. Rosenblum was interviewed by KVOA 4 about UA's efforts to teach future TVIs UEB.
Here's a fun way to get a quick UEB Overview, listen to a recording from the American Council of the Blind Minnesota Convention at which President Kim Charlson provides a lively explanation.
Or, watch a 1--hour webinar titled "A Brief Overview of Unified English Braille (UEB)" done by Frances Mary D'Andrea and available at no cost from AFB Press.
Looking for a fun way to let students/clients know about the 9 contractions that are not in UEB? How about singing the "UEB Ain't Hard to Do" song. Check out the lyrics as a PDF or .brf by Judy Matsuoka and the audio recording by Mark Brady.
