Good evening, 
For those who are looking for the article from Cedar Rapids, I have shared the link below. 

I am sad to see the layoffs at the Department for the Blind, but I know it was not a easy decision to have to make.

Greetings coleagues,

I see we've lost ten more positions at the library for hte blind.  One of 
the reasons cited is so-called "digital braille."

I hate to tell these clowns this, but "digital braille" is only digital if 
one is using a braille display to read it.  Or, if one has a braille 
embosser to make hardcopy.
Otherwise, reading braille with syntehsized speech is not using braille 

IF folks are wondering what I"m referencing, I am referencing an article 
in the state news section of the Burlington Hawkeye for February 26.
