Fingerprint braille course - volumes 1 to 11

Product code: TC21439

Fingerprint is a contracted (grade 2) braille course, designed for people learning to read braille by touch because of sight loss. It can be used to teach others or as a self-teach course. It has proved to be successful with both young adults and older learners.

If you'd like to learn uncontracted (grade 1) braille we recommend the Dot-to-dot touch learners pack (TC21441).


Starting with pre-braille skills, the complete contracted braille code is taught in small steps, with plenty of practice exercises which include short reading passages and writing exercises.

The course consists of 11 braille volumes and includes sections covering practical daily uses of braille, capitalisation, and the code for representing email and web addresses. These volumes are used in conjunction with the instructional text, and include the Fingerprint braille course reference sign book (TC21440).
