National Braille Week 2012

This week is National Braille Week - National Braille Weeks runs from the 4 - 11 January each year. Over the centuries Braille has had an enormous effect on the lives of millions of people across 120 countries worldwide. It is not a language but a code by which all languages may be written and read. The ability to read and write in Braille opens the door to literacy, intellectual freedom, equal opportunity, and personal security. It is an extremely important gateway to opportunity for the UK's blind or partially sighted people, enabling them to be more independent. See more at http://www.nationalbrailleweek.org/
