Learning braille

For people with visual disabilities, braille is an irreplaceable script. Braille gives people the possibility to communicate without relying on others.  This writing system was invented by Louis Braille (1809 - 1852), who created an alphabet based on six raised dots. By learning Braille, people with visual disabilities can read and write books.

Where can you find Braille books?

The National Centre for Accessible Reading lends such books to blind and partially sighted people.
