Braille or print


I thank God every day that I had the opportunity to learn how to and use such things as pencils, crayons, and paper and I am also truly grateful that I learned how to read and write Braille.

Braille was the first thing that I learned. At an early age I learned how to read and write it and this is because my sight was not good enough to enable me to learn how to read and write print. However, this all changed when I became a teenager and thanks to Dr. Rosen of Montreal, I had my first cornea transplant and then learned how to read and write print. I had many years of using both Braille and print but then, alas! My vision failed me in early 2004 and it was back to Braille.

Braille or print? For me, it was both for many years and I am a very lucky person.

I'm Donna J. Jodhan, your friendly accessibility advocate, wishing you a terrific day and inviting you to come by and listen to some of my audio mysteries at www.donnajodhan.com.
