Braille Round up

I would guess that over seventy-five percent of the work I do every day has something to do with ADA compliance. Although Priority Architectural Graphics is nearly a full service sign shop, ADA signage including braille is our niche. That said, I thought it would be nice to share some of my resources here. These links are on my del.icio.us page that I try to update whenever I get a chance. If this interests you, bookmark it, and check back for updates. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated too.
