published a special edition dedicated to the proceedings of the General
Assembly of the International Council on English Braille, which took place
at the National Federation of the Blind Jernigan Institute on May 22-26,

newly elected president of the World Blind Union and chief editor of JBIR,
stated: "The proceedings of the 2016 ICEB General Assembly is the single
largest consolidated source of contemporary information about Unified
English Braille (UEB) in the English speaking world. The papers reflect the
thinking and deep personal commitment of the world's foremost authorities on
English braille and their determination to insure that braille continues to
be the foundation of literacy and equal opportunity for blind people

The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the
characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day, we raise
expectations of the blind because low expectations create obstacles between
blind people and our dreams. Blindness is not what holds you back. You can
live the life you want.!. 


"Whatever you dare to dream, begin." - Goethe
