I read several articles and books available online. I do not have the direct
links because I saved the material on my pen drive. Still you will find them
on the following sites:
In addition I read two braille books on Louis Braille by Pierre Henri and by
Margaret Davidson available from Blind Persons' Association.
I also visited Wikipedia at
for certain references.
I read braille books a lot regularly. I gave up braille writing when I
became used to computer. But now after reading so much about Louis Braille
and his achievement, I have started carrying my braille writing frame again.
I use computer for all sorts of jobs. Still I never feel like reading when I
am using Jaws. It seems that I am listening to somebody's reading.
