We will begin with the first ten letters of the alphabet. First the letter, then the dots needed to create that specific letter will be given. A. = dot 1.

B. = dots 1 & 2.

C. = dots 1 &4.

D. = dots 1. 4. & 5.

E. = dots 1 & 5.

F. = dots 1. 2. &4.

G. = dots 1. 2. 4. & 5.

H. = dots 1. 2. & 5.

I. = dots 2 & 4.

J. = dots 2. 4. & 5.

I would recommend that you practice these 10 letters until you can recall them with ease. To create the next ten letters of the alphabet in braille, you need to add dot 3 to the first ten letters. See below. K. = dots 1 & 3.

L. = dots 1. 2. & 3.

M. = dots 1. 3. &4.

N. = dots 1. 3. 4. & 5.

o. = dots 1. 3. & 5.

P. = dots 1. 2. 3. & 4.

Q. = dots 1. 2. 3. 4. & 5.

R. = dots 1. 2. 3. & 5.

S. = dots 2. 3. & 4.

T. = dots 2. 3. 4. & 5. There are six more letters that remain, U through Z. With the exception of the letter W, add the dot 6 to the letters K through O to create the remaining letters. U. = dots 1. 3. 6.

V. = dots 1. 2. 3. & 6.

X. = dots 1. 3. 4. & 6.

Y. = dots 1. 3. 4. 5. & 6.

Z. = dots 1. 3. 5. & 6. Since the w was not used in France during the 1800's, it needed to be added afterwards.

W. = dots 2. 4. 5. & 6.

That concludes the alphabet. Like I already mentioned, practice is the best method for learning anything new. As for the numbers, A. through I = 1 through 9, and J = 0. To distinguish between the letters and numbers, you must first use the number sign to represent the dots as a number, rather than a letter. Here are the numbers, be sure to put the number sign before the dots representing the number.

Number sign = dots 3. 4. 5. & 6.

1. = number sign, then dot 1.

2.= number sign, then dots 1 & 2.

3. = number sign, then dots 1 & 4.

4. = number sign, then dots 1. 4. & 5.

5. = number sign, then dots 1 & 5.

6. = number sign, then dots 1. 2. & 4.

7. = number sign, then dots 1. 2. 4. & 5.

8. = number sign, then dots 1. 2. & 5.

9. = number sign, then dots 2 & 4.

0. = number sign, then dots 2. 4. & 5. Once you have mastered the A. B. C‘s and numbers, you can then purchase Dymo tape and go label crazy. It will truly open many doors for your independence. Label medicine, spices, canned/ frozen foods, files, DVD’s, CD’s, documents, and much much more! Thank you for reading my article! Remember to stay on the dotted line of life! Be safe and see you again in February!
