Do sheets of braille paper keep slip slidin' away from you as you move your hand across the page? Here's a handy tip to help keep your braille paper in place.
Place your paper on a ½ inch thick or thicker piece of packing foam. The foam grips the paper just enough to keep it from slipping, and, if you like to place your reading matter in your lap, the foam's thickness keeps the paper from folding or bunching.
A good source for packing foam is in boxes used to ship electronics equipment and computers. Ask your local electronics dealer or computer store to set aside a piece if you don't have any foam at home. You might also find foam remnants at carpet and rug dealers, department stores and merchants who ship or receive fragile goods.
