Braille looks different in 2021 at RSB - World Braille Day
Nikita is a 28 year old mum of two whose low vision was further impacted by a bout of meningitis 3 years ago, leaving her with just 3% vision in one eye. Whilst she still has some remaining vision, Nikita has commenced braille lessons with RSB. Eight lessons in, with NDIS support, Nikita has nailed the alphabet and is looking forward to getting stuck into new braille technology.
2021 users can connect braille devices to their smartphones, compose emails and use the internet and other software programs with braille and screen text outputs. Braille is not just 'reading' anymore. It helps users to be independent, educated and opens up professional opportunities.
We'll be sure to check back in on Nikita's progress.
