Alternative tactile formats
In recent years, RNIB's Centre for Accessible Information have conducted
research into tactile reading codes alternative to braille (including
Moon). This has included a literature review on alternative
tactile reading codes and an international survey looking at tactile
reading codes used worldwide. These reports are available to
download as accessible Word documents from RNIB's website.
