This Tuesday: Braille Around the World: a Special Event to mark World Braille Day

We know about braille in the UK, of course, and we regularly hear about braille in other developed English-speaking countries – the US, Australia, New Zealand and so on. But there are many other countries in the world about which we hear much less. How is braille taught? How is it produced? How easy is it to obtain? What braille technology is in use?

Join us at 7:30 PM on Tuesday 4 January to explore these issues in detail. We will be joined by panellists from China, Macedonia and South Africa who will help to set the scene, and we’re inviting you to ask them your questions. You’re also welcome to share your own perspective of international braille.
