World Braille Day Observed by ICMEI London

World Braille Day Observed by ICMEI London

London 4th Jan: World Braille Day, celebrated since 2019, is observed to raise awareness of the importance of Braille as a means of communication in the full realization of the human rights for blind and partially sighted people.

Braille is a tactile representation of alphabetic and numerical symbols using six dots to represent each letter and number, and even musical, mathematical and scientific symbols. Braille (named after its inventor in 19th century France, Louis Braille) is used by blind and partially sighted people to read the same books and periodicals as those printed in a visual font,” informed Dr. Sandeep Marwah President International Chamber of Media And Entertainment Industry talking to the members of ICMEI at Hotel The Dorchecter, Park Lane, London.

“Braille is essential in the context of education, freedom of expression and opinion, as well as social inclusion, as reflected in article 2 of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities,” added Dr. Marwah also Patron to IFUNA- Indian Federation of United Nations Associations.
