Moon is a system of raised lines and curves that people read by feeling with their fingertips. Short passages of Moon can be produced using portable hand frames, the letters are indented on film sheets. Self-adhesive plastic sheets containing Moon characters which can be cut out to create labels are available, temporary passages can be created with Moon tiles.
Moon characters are fairly large and many characters have a strong resemblance to their print equivalent. Consequently individuals who lose their sight later in life, or individuals who do not have sensitive touch in their fingertips may find Moon easier to learn then Braille.1View references and sources of further information ›
