[access-uk] Re: when is the new Braille coming out as I have had some information

Steve, you mean you bath? (smile).

I know lots of avid Braillists who don't subscribe to magazines and other literature in that format because they are out all day and can't be bothered with the hassle of collecting it from the Sorting Office, neighbours or whatever. Like it or not, Braille isn't always convenient, so I do take your point entirely in answering Derek's question.

Hi Derek,

Not at all lazy.  I am a proficient Braille reader, but I can fit a Victor
Reader Stream or Bookcourier in my pocket and have 20 books or more on it.
I could not take that number of books with me on the train, or I would have
a permanent back injury.  I can also read with a bookcourier at 400 wpm, I
can't do that in Braille, so far more information is absorbed.  I do love
Braille, but I must admit to being an audio convert.  Besides I can listen
to my talking books in the bath!

All the best

Steve

Iain says

"McKerral is blind and a Braille reader as also is Jim McCafferty."

Yes but how many  on BAUK  read Braille alot.

For example, why do so many blind people choose a disk copy of an RNIB
magazine, rather than a Braille copy?
Why choose  talking  books, rather than braille books?


Note I am of course aware many people not able to read Braille.
I am talking about those that can read braille, but choose not to.
lazy  or what?

Regards,  Derek
