Episode 22

On the show this week, and in celebration of World Braille Day on 4th January, we host a panel discussion with several experienced braille users who speak about their lives with braille and share with us their top braille device recommendations. We’re also joined by Lina Kouzi and Rebecca Curtis from the Library & Media Centre at NCBI to find out about LEGO Braille Bricks toolkits being sent to teachers and early years educators in schools right across the country as an invaluable resource for learning braille.

Have you ever thought about learning braille? Would you like to become a proficient touch typist, find out about the many benefits of Smart Speakers, or know how to use a Screen Reader such as NVDA or JAWS to its full potential? If you answered yes to any of these questions why not sign up to one of our virtual technology courses taking place throughout the year? NCBI Labs technology training manager Denis Nolan tells us more.
