Mountbatten Braille Writer Learning System

Literacy Skills are basic to all learning, and learning is fundamental to every child’s success. The MB Learning System has been designed for children who need Braille. It is a fun and inclusive introduction to Braille literacy and provides a solid foundation for a life-time of learning. It is suitable for the very first stages of Braille instruction through to high school and beyond. With its exceptional flexibility and range of functions, the MB Learning System is a solution for meeting ever changing educational and teaching goals. It contains tools that are simply not offered by more traditional devices.

Reinforces recognition of Braille characters – utilising speech output to enable and promote experiential learning.

Allows pre-Braille activities and play for young children long before they are physically able to use traditional mechanical Braille writers.

Develops technology and Braille as Life Skills – concepts of using files and editing documents are introduced at a basic level, all in the context of learning Braille.

Introduces organisational concepts such as planning and time management – using the built-in clock and diary functions. Removes attitudinal barriers by taking the „mystery” out of Braille – sighted teachers, peers and family can connect a regular PC keyboard and write in Braille.

Assists with inclusion and participation – the student’s work is displayed on the Mimic screen.

Literacy through Braille opens up the world of communication and expression – essential for living successfully. Braille fulfils needs that cannot be addressed by verbal and audio methods. The MB Learning System is the ideal platform for launching children into the world of Braille literacy.
