> Label It!
> Braille & Audio Strategies for Identifying Items at Home & Work
> By Judith M. Dixon
> In braille and PortaBook, $10
>
> Imagine for a moment that nothing in your house is labeled in braille.
> Or maybe you don't have to imagine it! Do you reach in the fridge for
> some OJ and grab the milk carton instead? Ever sprinkle some cinnamon on
> your French toast--but it's cayenne pepper instead? And are you wearing
> your new maroon silk blouse, or the one with the plaid pattern that
> clashes with almost every skirt you own?
>
> These examples may be extreme, but think about it--are you expending
> more mental energy on identifying things than you would like?
>
> In Label It!, author Judy Dixon sorts through the labeling strategies
> that she and her friends have used through the years and identifies the
> very best ideas and tips. Focusing primarily on labeling with braille,
> Judy covers all the bases: clothing and accessories, medications, food
> containers, appliances, and a hodgepodge of other items, from postage
> stamps to chargers and cables. She also discusses what to do when you
> can't label something, and tricks to employ when you're out and about
> and nothing is labeled. An extensive resource list at the back covers
> labeling materials and products. This is the most useful book you'll buy
> all year!
