I learned to read Braille over 30 years ago (I was in High School) - someone dared me to learn it, said a sighted person could NOT learn to read Braille. I wanted to prove them wrong - so I learned Level 1 Braille.

My Best Friend is blind, Beth has written me Braille letters / cards, and we are both active in Ham Radio. She even sent me a letter in Braille when I was hospitalized back in 1993.
