Braille Mode is a feature unique to Typio. This mode turns Typio into a braille typing tutor. Students can use either their Typing Pet or Basic Modes to learn to type braille.

When Braille Mode is enabled, the standard keyboard acts as a braille input. The F, D, S, J, K, L keys represent the braille dots.

Typing tutorials, lessons and games are automatically switched to a braille curriculum, featuring 50 included lessons ranging from the alphabet, to numbers and punctuation. Braille contractions can be used as well.
