Hi Friends, Family and new friends

Please fill this 14 question survey out? Computer use as an Adult
We need major research to prove how desperately  children need computer instruction in the school systems by proving what the adult population is using now or if retired, what you did use in your job. The hope is to present this information next year everywhere around the world and in particular at blind conferences in order to get computer instruction into the school systems.
Please pass this onto  family members, friends, colleagues, and adults you can think of and make a plea for them to fill it out. I need to collect as much data as I can in the next few months. Thanks for your help on getting the word out

The Louis Braille Online Resource provides information about Louis Braille and the braille code he created.

​Louis Braille was fifteen years old when he developed his raised dot method of reading and writing. He called it “my alphabet.” His alphabet is now called braille in honor of the young man who devised it. It has been ​adapted to hundreds of languages and ​dialects throughout the world.​
