I know what you mean. Being a life long braille reader I tested out of beginning braille in college and went right on to take advanced braille as part of my certification to teach it. I thought it would be a piece of cake, but it really wasn't, with all of the signs in advanced math and chemistry, braille music and such. Plus the grading was really tough. One mistake an A, two a B, etc. At that time there was an attempt to discourage braille use with more emphasis placed on large print and magnification devices whenever possible, and their methods of teaching it did just that with a lot of sighted teachers. I saw a lot of teachers going into it with a very enthusiastic attitude about braille, only to come out of it not wanting to teach it.
