This section includes equipment for creating Braille by hand using a pointed stylus and small frame to push dots into paper. Braille equipment which may assist in the instruction of Braille is also included.
The paper is placed on a portable writing-frame, pushing the stylus into the paper creates a dot on the underside of the paper. As this creates a dot on the reverse side of the paper the Braille has to be written back to front. 1
Upward writing frames are now available which create the dots on the front of the piece of paper enabling you to produce Braille from left to right as you would read the code. This is quicker than having to write backwards. 1
