Braille Fonts

This page discusses sources and usage of braille fonts.

3D Fonts

SketchUp's "3D Fonts" tool can handle TrueType fonts. I'm currently using "HBS-8-Braille Visuell Dot" (see below) with it, being careful to avoid digits and special characters (which have different patterns in EuroBraille).
