Dear Fellow Federationists:

As many of you know, the National Federation of the Blind is distributing free slates and styluses to blind people in the United States. In our new Youtube video, Dr. Maurer talks about this program. He discusses the usefulness of the slate and stylus­the original, and still most flexible and practical, Braille writing tool, and its importance to Braille literacy. Please share this video with everyone you know who uses Braille or is interested in using or learning the code­the key to success for blind children and adults. Here is the link to the video:

Please enjoy and share via e-mail, on your Facebook page or your Twitter feed, at NFB meetings and other gatherings of blind people, and in any other way you can imagine.

The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise the expectations of blind people, because low expectations create obstacles between blind people and our dreams. You can live the life you want; blindness is not what holds you back.
