A most interesting article. In conveys a lot in its brevity but draws some
conclusions I don't. Because I am a proficient braille reader, I don't see
audio and braille at war in my life. I use audio extensively - it's easier
to fall asleep at night to a spare time book with audio. It's easier to take
a leisurely bath reading with audio VS Braille, but it's not easier to write
a computer program, edit a document, and learn the spelling of words. I knew
about Enron long before I saw it in Braille and realized how it was spelled.
What about its boss - is that Kenneth Lay or is his last name spelled
differently. For the longest time I thought the word authentic was offentic
and thought the word frustrated was flustrated.`.
I don't want to act or feel superior just because I know Braille. What I do
want is to bring it to anyone who wants and can benefit from it. In a world
where there is so much more print than there is accessible material, I want
to learn and teach anything which gives access to more information.
