New Dots Downunder: The Implementation of Unified English Braille (UEB) in Australian Schools
Gentle, Frances; Steer, Michael; Howse, Josie
British Journal of Visual Impairment, v30 n3 p197-200 Sep 2012
In this article the authors will outline and describe the recent implementation of Unified English Braille (UEB) in Australia's complex school systems. The New South Wales Department of Education and Communities (NSW/DEC) played a leading role in the process. The education sector at all levels in Australia appears to have embraced the introduction of UEB with enthusiasm, and Braille teachers and students have taken a positive approach to learning the new Braille code.
