The Tactile Times is a fun, online newspaper edited by Ellie, Lexy and Theo. United by their shared love for all things braille, it first came into being when they collectively realized that there was no newspaper that published articles about the sort of things that they were interested in as young braillists.

Free to read online and with ambitious plans to begin hardcopy circulation in 2023, the newspaper has developed a loyal, international audience of blind children and teenagers, all bound by their appreciation of the paper’s eclectic selection of tech, jokes, sports and event listings with coverage geared towards fellow blind readers in a way that only The Tactile Times knows how.
