Our main association of the blind organizes stupid contests like "who reads faster in Braille", or general culture contests, or poem writing and reading contests, or organizes goalball cups, or other games for the blind only, and even they organize contests for chess, they do it only for the blind and not for all the world as they should do it. This is because those few money they give as prizes are very important for some association members, and those contests have the same participants on each edition.
What do those contests help the blind persons with? Of course, aside of those few money they receive.
Nope, they were just showing how well they know to operate a computer.A blindprogramming list member proposed to also include programming in the contest, but they didn't agree with that. Unfortunately, they are not promoting what could be helpful for the blind, but only things that might have been helpful many years ago.
