APH Braille/Print Protractor:
Part 9, Labeling tactile angles made with the Sewell Raised Line Drawing Board.

Now, just as I did with the sighted student,
this student is going to need to label this in some way,
so I thought I would go ahead and add that to.
Pretend this is a real lesson.
So, we're gonna get the Braille Writer out,
get that old Braille Writer.
Of course, we've got the new and fan...
I don't have one of the new or fancier ones, but we're just gonna use this,
and we're gonna put our Braille paper in.
We're gonna start out just to...
I'm not sure if I can...
This table is a little high for me,
but I'm gonna go ahead and put my name at the top, and then I'm gonna move down.
Let me see, I don't think that would look right to get to the paper.
I'm gonna move on down until I get right in there.
I'm gonna... Wait, if I could...
I'm just gonna stand up a little bit so I can do this better.
And I'm gonna go ahead and just put 90 right in there.
I'm not gonna go... In this case, I'm not gonna...
It'll take too much space to put 90 degrees, and then I'm...
The degree sign. And then, let's see.
Up a little bit.
Then I'll go ahead and put my 70.
And then we can hand that in to the teacher.
And we have done just what the sighted kids did just a moment ago.
Okay. Now, as you can see, as I've taken it,
it's a little easier to see after I take it out of the Braille Writer,
just putting the name up in the left-hand corner or wherever it should be.
And then I was trying to be very careful to align and, of course, putting them as code, the 90,
and so I'm trying to put it inside an angle fairly close, but again, inside.
And in this case, 70 degrees in Nemeth Code.
Numeric indicator: 7, 0.
Over here, numeric indicator: 9, 0,
with any angle, if possible, because that is certainly the preferred way.
And I say the preferred way 'cause if you're trying to do a 10-degree angle,
the student might not have enough room to be able to do that.
