Braille font

This sentence is in Braille.

Someone today sent me a Braille font. It a way I think it is kind of funny… braille for sighted people. You will have to actually download and install the SimBraille font to use it. The image above says "This sentence is in Braille". There is also an ASL (American Sign Language) font called Gallaudet after the University. That doesn't seem as odd as a visual representation of blind text, but it is still a tiny bit odd. I wondered if the gallaudet font is much used? I can see the Braille font being used as a teaching device, I may do that myself as a mode of refreshing my Braille skills (which have almost faded).

Anyone out there with some favorite off-the-beaten-path fonts?
