National Braille Literacy Awareness Month


Company: The Carroll Center for the Blind

In honor of Louis Braille, who developed the Braille code more than 200 years ago, January has been designated National Braille Literacy Awareness Month. The braille code features a series of raised dots that correspond to letters of the alphabet to make text detectable for individuals who are blind. Braille, himself was a blind individual.

Even in a digital world braille remains relevant. It is being incorporated into the latest technology to be used with computers, tablets and smartphones. Also, researchers have found a strong relationship between those who can read and understand braille and a high employment rate for the blind, braille readers.
