  • (2017-03-20) Patrick Sheehan: Very cool. Unfortunately "w" doesn't seem to work, which is definitely annoying. Also, I can't get it to work in my gmail (which is most of what I read on my laptop). When it does work, though, it's pretty fun and great for practicing the characters! [It is perhaps worth mentioning that I think it is using purely UEB Grade 1 (not Grade 2) since it doesn't appear to use contractions at all - neither wordsigns, nor groupsigns, nor shortforms. This is pretty understandable since converting to full Grade 2 would likely be a lot harder than Grade 1, but if there aren't going to be *any* contractions, then it should *definitely* be advertised as UEB Grade 1 Braille instead, since use of contractions is specifically what differentiates between Grade 1 and Grade 2. (It's a bit like a restaurant selling a "cheeseburger" without any cheese on it. There's nothing wrong with a hamburger, it's just not the same thing as a cheeseburger.)]
