Google is celebrating. (http://www.google.com/)

(My best friend in tai chi class is visually impaired and had a guide dog. We went to an Olive Garden once, with dog, and they brought her a Braille menu. Fortunately, she's not that badly off and can read with a magnifying glass or if it's large print.)

Ha! I "ToSeeked" ToSeek!! :dance:

"Mexican Jumping Star?" Now, that warranted a quick Google (which seems to be in braille today).

This is a good thread. :)

I read braille when I get on elevators. I don't know why I do it, but I do.

Somewhere, I have a children's biography of Louis Braille. Yay, tuberculosis! Oh, wait . . . . (But it does have a full Braille alphabet on the back. I've great respect for those who can actually use it, because my fingers clearly aren't sensitive enough to make the distinctions.)
