With restaurants, cafes and pubs all trying to entice us back out with tantalising money off promotions today we’ll be tackling the issue of eating out with little or no sight. Feel knocked for six at the sight of chopsticks? Do you stay well away from the buffet? What do you do when your strawberry compote arrives in a plant pot? Michelle, Elin and Ben will be sharing their experiences around eating out as blind people but there’ll be plenty of time for all of your questions and tips as well. If you’ve ever ordered a burger for accessibility reasons when you’ve secretly wanted something else this session’s for you!

Join the Braille Book Club to share hints and tips on how to enjoy reading digital braille.

Last week we started with a very short children’s story, A Place for Pluto by Steph Wade. This charming tale reflects on our place in the Universe from the perspective of Pluto, which was recently reclassified as a planetoid.

Join us this week and help us choose our next braille book.
