[NFB-Braille-Discussion] Literacy for Adult Learners

The only  limitation I've heard of is that adults who learn braille as
"older" adults (above 60 years?) rarely break 100 words per minute.
I learned at age 56 years and now at 71, I am about 80 words per minute,
even though I read all the time!

Good evening. I hope everyone's had another wonderful Convention.

Does anyone here know of braille readers who learned as adults and read at
the standard 240+ WPM? I've only heard of one or two people managing it;
most people tell me it's never going to happen. I refuse to accept that.
