Description of App
TypeInBraille allows you to write in Braille on your iPhone. You can enter a character through its Braille representation using a sequence of three simple gestures. Each gesture is used to enter one of the three rows of a braille character.
You can find a full description of the typing technique at http://www.everywaretechnologies.com/apps/typeinbraille/
Write your notes
- type your notes using your fingers to enter Braille dots;
- edit the text (delete, select, copy, cut and paste);
- navigate the text (character by character, word by word).
Send and copy your notes
- send your notes via e-mail;
- send your notes via text message.
- copy your notes on the clipboard and paste in any application (e.g., notes).
Type in a noisy environment!
The TypeInBraille text-entry method does not totally depend on the speech feedback. You can write your notes in a noisy environment (a tramcar, at the railway station, etc.).
With TypeInBraille you can easily enter text on-the-go. You are not forced to search for keys on a virtual keyboard.
TypeInBraille does not replace the iPhone keyboard.
TypeInBraille is compatible with iOS 5 or later.
Currently TypeInBraille only supports English Braille. More localizations will be available soon.

Works as advertised.
the first thing to know is that the letters are pronounced as English letters, but the punctuation is European: takes some getting used to. the developers are very interested in making improvements and in doing research to support further development. I use this a lot at this point; it's very promising.
