The key word is "patterns".  (These can then be printed out on a special
printer/machine that does embossing.  _I assume_, since I've never seen
one; only heard about them.  I've also heard of electronic devices that
output a line of Braille just above or below the keyboard.  That was many
years ago, so they may be much more sophisticated these days.)

   the glare and harmful UV (ultra-vanity), and you feel so-o-o COOL."
