BANA Publishes Part Two of Article on the Evolution of Braille
 The Braille Authority of North America (BANA) has recently released
the second segment of a three-part article on the evolution of
braille. In this piece, BANA focuses on the complexities of code
building as well as on current challenges in transcription,
translation, and backtranslation of braille.

Parts One and Two of "The Evolution of Braille: Can the Past Help Plan
the Future?" are now posted on the BANA website at:
www.brailleauthority.org. The final segment of this significant
article will be released in early December. BANA will announce its
publication through press releases and email announcements.

BANA will meet on November 3–6, 2011, in Baltimore, MD. Guests are
invited to attend BANA Board meetings and to observe the
deliberations. The Board's agenda includes reports from all of BANA's
committees as well as from September’s World Congress Braille21
conference in Leipzig, Germany. If you are interested in attending the
BANA meeting, please contact Chair Judy Dixon to reserve space.
