Hi Maria,

I live in ohio.  Thanks many have given the address already and I think I have 
it somewhere too so don't go digging for it.

Thanks

Rick

  Hi Rick,
  I'm not sure if you live in the states or overseas, but I have to say that 
this is the first time I've heard of an agency for the blind  charging a 
visually impaired person for braille instruction.  In any case, I know that you 
can learn braille through a correspondence course at the Hadley School in 
Winnetka, Illinois.  Some years ago I took some classes with them, and they 
were free.  I don't know if that is still the case, but you can certainly 
inquire.  I don't have the contact info at hand, but perhaps one of the other 
members of the list does.  I will look it up in the meantime.

  Maria

    Hi everyone,

    Should I learn Braille?  I am 42 and my case worker told me I was probably 
too old to learn it well and now a days it really wasn't as necessary with 
computers and other electronic things.  Do you agree or Should I really try to 
learn it.

    Question #2 is If so, where would I start?  My vision center here wants 
$125 for an evaluation then $25 an hour for lessons.  What do you think?

    Thanks for any advice.

    Rick
