Braille Buddy is a 2-phase educational device aiding the visually impaired in the learning of Braille. The two phases include teaching of reading through the Braille-Cell and teaching of writing in the practice of standard Braille keyboard. Braille Buddy, through its moving handles, draws an intuitive transition in the Braille numbering system for reading and writing which has been noted as the most difficult stage of learning Braille.
