Today celebrates the birth of Louis Braille, inventor of the reading and writing system used by millions of blind and partially sighted people all over the globe.  World Braille Day provides an opportunity for teachers, charities and non-government organizations to raise awareness about issues facing the blind.  It also reminds us of how important it is to continue to produce works in braille, providing the blind with access to the same reading and learning opportunities as the sighted.

According to the World Blind Union, “The Marrakesh Treaty is the name of an international agreement finalized in June 2013 that would allow copyright exceptions for published works to be made widely available in accessible formats” This would allow blindness organizations to share their resources with other organizations in developing countries that may not have the resources to produce books for their blind citizens.

So today, celebrate Louis Braille’s exceptional contribution to the blind community by writing a letter to your government representatives and encourage them to make this treaty a reality.
