Korean Braille

Korean Braille is a system for reading and writing that uses dots to represent letters in
Korean. Blind people who cannot perceive and interpret the alphabet through sight utilize
Braille well. Thus, blind people utilize their tactile senses to comprehend words and even
sentences using Braille.

The language awakens people to the necessity of the system for blind people in their
everyday lives. Practicing writing and reading in Korean Braille requires repetitive months of training. Reading in Korean Braille requires memorizing the Korean alphabet, numbers, and symbols and connecting by associating each alphabet to make a phrase or a sentence. Writing in Korean Braille also requires taxing efforts. You also need Braille writing slates and styluses to write it in an easily comprehensible manner. You first need to place a piece of paper in a braille writing slate and fix its tape position using the frame attached to the slate on one side of its margin. Then, you dot down the Korean Braille alphabet in the opposite direction so that the final sentences would be readable from left to right once it flips. (It gets quite difficult to dot the alphabet in the mirrored orientation.)

It is amusing how the well-developed Braille language bestows ease and comfort to
blind people. Furthermore, people often report feelings of self-pride to learn an uncommon yet special Korean Braille. Why not try learning to read and write in Korean Braille? Each step you take to learn the language will promote its recognition.
