Hadley presents Contracted Braille, 11 Alphabetic Wordsigns.
Before we get started, I just wanna acquaint you with the layout here and what's available to you through these workshops. When you scroll down this page, you'll notice a few things that will come in real handy and make your learning a lot easier too.
First, the resources tab right below this frame has handouts, website links, and more. These are really handy when going through the workshop. The other resources listed give you lots of opportunities to practice your skills. And if you scroll down a bit further, you'll notice that we've made getting in touch with a Braille expert real easy too. Calling the posted number or emailing then puts you directly in touch with these Braille experts. Don't hesitate to ask for their help. That's why they're here.
Alphabetic word signs are single letters that stand alone to represent a word. For instance, the letter G stands for go.
Ed: Now that you've had a chance to learn a bit with us, we'd like to learn more about you, your name, email address, how you heard about Hadley, and your relationship to vision loss. Learning more will give us a better understanding of how to personalize Hadley just for you. And don't worry, everything you share with us online will be kept safe and secure. Of course, if you prefer to talk through these questions, we're just a phone call away at 800-323-4238.
Taking these few steps saves your preferences so you can continue right where you left off and track your progress every time you log on. Plus, it connects you to the Hadley community and helps sustain our funding to keep Hadley free of charge. And last but not least, it gives you direct access to experts like me. Now, where were we?
