RE[1]: New Year Update: The Quixote, Other Projects & Canute

Gaela Benn


I would love to be able to access e-books with a braille readout. I am happy reading in braille as a sight and hearing impaired person but totally frustrated at the extremely limited amount of books available in braille. Reading is where my imagination comes to life. Where my disability should not be a bar to new worlds and new exciting adventures.

But at the present I am still chained to earth by lack of access. So few sci-fi books are available in braille and most of those are very old publications. I want to be able to read the newest titles not ones from the 60s and 70s. Ebooks are available from my local library and I could download them from home.. great in theory. But then I have no means to read them in braille.

Canute could open them up to me so that i too "may boldly go where no man has gone before!"
