Session in Braille learning started in Kerala
October 13, 2016
In a first-of-its-kind initiative in Kerala, a group of blind people including children started learning by touching Braille dots here.
Twelve people from the ages of 8-30 years were made to read the braille alphabets at a special programme.
Experts helped them read the English braille alphabets during a function organised by the National Association for the Blind.
Most of the participants were from a poor background and had not started any kind of learning.
Besides the blind, parents and relatives were also given the first lessons to read Braille.
