Is a functional application designed for more accurate communication intended for low vision users. This App allows for the lookup of contracted (also known as Grade 2) Braille signs using the Unified English Braille (UEB) code and/or using the older English Braille American Edition. Users can search either by the dots they see on the page or by the English abbreviation or punctuation they seek. For example, they can type into the "Dots Seen" field dots 1 2 3 and this will tell them that it is the letter "L" or the word "like" depending on context of its use. Conversely, they could type in the word "like" into the English phrase field and it would tell them the Dots needed, which in this case would  be Dots 1 2 3. This App is intended to be used as a reference tool only; it does not function as a translation tool.There is an index of all Braille contractions that can be browsed at a glance.
