    In the past, Braille materials were produced by a Braille slate and stylus or a Brailler (Braille typewriter). The slate and stylus was the first method developed to produce Braille. The slate is a hinged device which has holes in the upper part and indentions in the lower part. The stylus is a pen with a small, rounded point about the size of the tip of a ball-point pen at one end. The paper is inserted in between the two parts of the slate, and the stylus is used to press each individual dot into the paper. The holes in the top part of the slate ensure uniform spacing, and the indentions in the lower part ensure uniform height of the embossed dots. The writer works from right to left (backwards), so that the Braille will be read from left to right when the Braille paper is removed from the slate.
