Hadley presents Special Braille Symbols, Special Symbols and Electronic Addresses.
Before we get started, I just want to acquaint you with the layout here and what's available to you through these workshops. When you scroll down this page, you'll notice a few things that will come in real handy and make your learning a lot easier too. First, the resources tab right below this frame has handouts, website links, and more. These are really handy when going through the workshop. The other resources listed give you lots of opportunities to practice your skills, and if you scroll down a bit further, you'll notice that we've made getting in touch with a braille expert real easy, too.
Calling the posted number or emailing them puts you directly in touch with these braille experts. Don't hesitate to ask for their help. That's why they're here.
There are some special symbols you'll need for digital content such as web addresses and Twitter posts. You'll also find other uses for these symbols, as you'll learn in this workshop.
Ed: Now that you've had a chance to learn a bit with us, we'd like to learn more about you, your name, email address, how you heard about Hadley, and your relationship to vision loss. Learning more will give us a better understanding of how to personalize Hadley just for you. And don't worry, everything you share with us online will be kept safe and secure. Of course, if you'd prefer to talk through these questions, we're just a phone call away at 800-323-4238.
Taking these few steps saves your preferences so you can continue right where you left off and track your progress every time you log on. Plus it connects you to the Hadley community, and helps sustain our funding to keep Hadley free of charge. And last but not least, it gives you direct access to experts like me. Now, where were we?
