Hi all, As a life long Braille reader I have not found the transition to be that difficult. Thought I used the Hadley Institute course on transitioning to UEB, I think I could have gotten by with one of the simple symbols sheets. It is important to remember that this transition will be more involved for students who are learning Braille during the change over of textbooks than for those of us who are adults and who "read to learn." Since textbooks will not be fully transitioned students such as those I work with as an assistive tech instructor need to know both codes.
