An introduction to Braille

Thursday 20 February 2020, 4pm - 5pm

Bookable Room 5

Braille is a tactile system for reading and writing devised 200 years ago for blind and partially sighted people. Although it is used all over the world, there are a number of areas where advances in accessible technology are replacing it. Despite this, Braille is still very much alive and remains an essential tool for access and independence. You don’t need to bring anything with you. Just come along and learn where Braille comes from and how it works. We’ll look at examples of how it is used in every day life and there‘ll be an opportunity to ask questions about the experience of living with a visual impairment.
