Braille is a tactile writing system used by people who are visually impaired. It is traditionally written with
embossed dots on paper. Braille users can read computer screens and other electronic supports using refreshable braille
displays. There are two type of Braille basic and contracted Braille in different languages. Basic Braille is one to one
conversion and individual cell cannot represent a word or abbreviation in this grade of Braille whereas contracted Braille cell
represent a shortened form of a word. The requirement of Urdu to braille converter is increasing day by day. There are many
software available for Braille but there is no support for Urdu (especially for Pakistan blind community). If there is Urdu
available in that software there is an issue of punctuation and Urdu Braille contraction is not including till now. Looking
forward to these issues, we think an idea and trying to develop this software “Urdu Braille Editor” that supports Grade I (basic
Braille) and Grade II (contracted Braille) in Urdu. The software will be provided as a service to the blind organizations.
