Several categories of Unified English Braille (UEB) have been added.

You can choose to have the name of each braille sign spoken, or spoken and spelled.
You can choose to study the signs or take a quiz.
If you choose to study the signs, you will be presented a list of contractions.
When you arrow up or down, you will hear what the contraction stands for and then how to represent that braille contraction.
If you choose to take the quiz, you can enter letters, and numbers for any Grade 2 signs or UEB signs that are needed.
You can also enter numbers when being tested on the braille alphabet, numbers, and punctuation marks.
All numbers must be in order.
For example, to enter the contraction for although, which is a l th sign,
you would need to enter the letter a, the letter l, and the numbers of the dots for th which is 1456.
The numbers must always be entered in order from 1 to 6.
Enter rr to repeat the entry or qq to quit.
