Perkins Braillers Available on Free, Long-Term Loan

N.B. this article is for historical interest only. All Perkins Braillers have now been taken and there are no more currently available.

Our partner organisation, Vision Through Sound, which has been managing our free equipment, has been offered a sizeable donation of Perkins Braillers from Portsmouth Association for the Blind, with logistics support from Bristol Braille Technology CIC.

Stephanie Sergeant, Proprietor of Vision Through Sound and well-known to many readers of this Newsletter, has generously agreed to make some of these machines available to Braillists members on free, long-term loan. They will be offered on a first come, first served basis, but with priority given to people who are learning braille.

It is possible that the first few machines will be available to collect at the Braillists’ “Braille and Beer” gathering next week. If you’d like to reserve one, please email Stephanie at [email protected].

We would like to place on record our heartfelt thanks to Vision Through Sound for allowing our readers to take advantage of this fantastic offer, and to Bristol Braille Technology and Portsmouth Association for the Blind for making this initiative possible.
