Judy Dixon's Collection of Braille and Tactile-writing Devices
As a primary tool of literacy, the slate and stylus is a blind person's pencil with similar advantages--extremely portable, relatively low in cost, does not require batteries or electricity, and has no moving parts that can easily break. The collection on this site presently consists of 261 unique slates and other items from 29 countries.
