World Braille Day 2019
Friday, January 4, was the birthday of Louis Braille and also World Braille Day. This was the first year that World Braille Day was recognized by the United Nations.
The #WorldBrailleDay tag was celebrated across social media such as Twitter, with stories about how people around the world use braille and how companies are incorporating braille into products.
"Almost two centuries after its invention, braille remains a system of powerful and enduring utility." (quote from the Wikipedia page for Louis Braille).
Happy World Braille day to all teachers, students, and transcribers!
