At Your fingertips – braille code debate and summer reading fun

In this episode, we discuss the transition to Unified English Braille (UEB) and the challenges faced by longtime Braille readers. We explore the resistance to change, the importance of learning new codes while honoring legacy ones, and the significance of standardization in the Braille community. Shifting focus, we delve into summer reading initiatives, highlighting the National Library Service’s program and sharing tips for a rewarding literary journey. By celebrating Braille, promoting reading adventures, and embracing the joy of storytelling, we aim to inspire a love for learning across generations.
