Braille Literacy Month
January is National Braille Literacy Month. It is estimated that 700,000 Americans younger than 21 are blind or have serious vision problems, even when wearing glasses. Braille uses a code of up to six dots to facilitate reading and writing. The word “Braille” stems from Louis Braille who became blind from an accident at the age of three. ETA compiled Workplace Resources for the Blind on WorkforceGPS to help increase awareness on how we can accommodate individuals with vision loss.
