But it would be a good thing if more people were given the chance to prefer Braille.

Hmmmmmm, perhaps not Ian, but isn't everyone allowed to choose their preferred format?

Yes, but some blind people read Braille and despite what some would have you believe, Braille is not dying nor should be allowed to die.

presumably someone has booked a slot in Stephen Fry's diary this time around?

They have, but the audio version won't be available until August 25. is anyone actually going to order the braille version then? yes I admit braille is bulky but I'm perfectly happy to read a book in that format, that's what it's for after all. Like I said I would have liked to have seen Daisy audio, but this might well have needed to be produced using concatenated speech rather than a human reader. Then there is the myth that all blind people read braille, I encounter this a lot and wouldn't be surprised if it is shared by the publishers.
