How to use the Taptilo block (Perkins style)

  1. Hold the block with both hands, the front side facing the user. (The front has a flat semicircle on the top). Start with all the dots pushed down.

  2. Place your thumbs along the sides and your index, middle, ring fingers on the bottom of each dot.

  3. With each finger, push the dots upward to create braille patterns. For instance, to create the letter ‘e’ (or the number 5) push dot 1 with your left hand’s index finger, and push dot 5 with your right hand’s middle finger.
