Free Braille Alphabet Vectors

Hi! And welcome to another free download. Today I’ve uploaded the 26 letters of the Grade 1 Braille alphabet as vectors.

Braille is a language for the deaf and hearing impaired that was developed by Louis Braille in 1825. Each Braille letter, or Braille cell, is made up of a combination of raised dots from six possible positions. It’s kind-a hard to describe in words, maybe it would be easier if you just took a look at these Braille characters:

Apparently the use of these braille symbols is on the decline worldwide due to the possibilities of new technology, but braille signs are still commonplace in public areas as a means of allowing visually impaired people to read the facility signage. That’s why I thought it might be useful for some of you out there to have these Braille cells as vector files.

Along with the English Braille alphabet there are also Braille cells for accented letters, words, abbreviations, punctuation and numbers. You can view all those here, while you can download a free vector file of the Grade 1 Braille cells pictured above here:
