Hi all -

I'm trying to track down a world globe that can be used by the totally blind. 
I've tried the RNIB [yes, I should have known better!] they've nothing, and 
seemed perplexed even by the enquiry! I've Googled for it, and found [using the 
translation tool] a Braille globe on a Dutch website, that sounds quite good, 
in that it has continents that can be detached for closer scrutiny, and put 
back in place, it also has quite a lot of other useful sounding features; 
however, it is 225 Euros! I didn't have that much in mind when wanting such a 

I do understand the difficulty with keeping a globe up-to-date etc, but anyway, 
anybody got any suggestions where to try?

Thanks -
