If you are reading a book, I'd agree, but for the sake of a label, I don't 
think many of us would struggle with grade 1.

I have to disagree Barry uncontracted braille is harder to read than contracted 
braille when you have learned it.

Like me, many vi people only know grade one Braille, so we wouldn't be able to 
read contracted Braille.  Those who can read contracted Braille would have no 
trouble reading uncontracted Braille.

Hi why should labels be in uncontracted braille (some of us prefer contracted 
braille) and it takes up less space.

Hi Gary,

Good points, but surely it would be best that labels are in uncontracted (Grade 
1) braille?

Second, braille in bottles does requires that the moulding tool used to create 
the bottles has been added.  Clearly this is best done at the initial tooling 
stage.

Embossing on to cartons is a decidedly tricky matter,  and I know has been 
looked at.

George

Hi all.

First off moderaters, I hope this is allowed on here, if not I do appologise.


Something is really puzzling me and I don't know if many people have
noticed this who are blind.


Have you ever noticed when you or someone you know goes to the
supermarket, if they pick up a bottle of bleach, any bottle no specific
brand required.

If you feel towards the bottom of the bottle, you'll notice it says that
in contracted Braille! Bleach I mean.


Well what's really puzzling me is if they can do this with Bleach and
vertually all medication these days, what's stopping companies from
doing this with Milk, Yoghurts and stuff like that!

I mean take one of my bottles of Bleach I've got at the moment, the
Braille at the bottom is really raised up clearly!

So obviously they are using some kind of ingraiving tool to somehow
ingraive this onto the bottle.


Anyway just an observation.

When I mentioned the Milk and things like that, I'm refurring to the date.
