Index tabs can help reduce the amount of time spent searching through braille text and reference books, such as glossaries and appendices. To make your own tabs, follow this simple procedure:
- Cut several 1 by 3/4-inch strips from poster board.
- Apply braille letters to the tags by using laminating sheets, dymo tape, or some other medium.
- Attach the tag to the right-hand side of the page, matching the letter with the appropriate section.
- For pages that are brailled in interpoint, the brailled tags are turned toward the back of the book for a section that begins on the back of the page.
To use the index, simply locate the correct letter and track across the page from right to left to begin a search.
