TechACCESS Staff Jayne Rabideau now Certified in Unified English Braille (UEB)

The United States has moved from English Braille American Edition (EBEA) to Unified English Braille (UEB). The Braille Authority of North America (BANA), affirmed January 4, 2016, as the date by which the United States will implement the general use of Unified English Braille (UEB). This action was based on a year of dialogue and planning that included the UEB Transition Forum.

UEB Online is a training program for sighted people to learn Unified English Braille (UEB). Unified English Braille has been adopted by many countries and replaces standard English braille. The Unified English Braille (UEB) code was developed by the International Council on English Braille to harmonize braille across codes and between English-speaking countries. This program is the first online UEB training tool. The program is suitable for professionals supporting children and adults with vision impairment. This course must be completed with 100% accuracy.

Congratulations, Jayne!
