If you go HERE you will see that I have written before about my small knowledge of Braille.
As a teaching assistant working with special needs students, I know how much we rely on gadgets to help them get through the school day.
In one classroom, an entire drawer is devoted to battery storage, with labels saying whose device uses which size.
We don’t have blind students in the local school system (I believe we pay for their education elsewhere, rented services perhaps?) but this article makes sense to me.
Braille literacy is needed more than reliance on technology for self-sufficient blind persons.
No Child Left Behind is falling behind with programs.
Just because Braille is old does not mean it is useless.
