Braille literacy is critical to the success and autonomy of blind people; there is a direct correlation between Braille literacy and succeeding in the work place. Learning to read and write is fundamental in for an independent way of living and is paramount to full and equal participation in society.

To facilitate access to Braille in this new digital era, an international team of researchers from Portugal, UK, and USA, came together to develop a series of projects to promote and leverage Braille literacy.
