Re: Need help learning Braille


sociohack, learning Braille is extremely helpful for what you want.
You may not get good enough to read books, but that isn't what you
want anyway. You just want to get good enough to read notes, etc, &
that is very very doable, even when you're older--& believe me, 22
just is not that old. I can assure you I use it for just that purpose,
as well as to sing in choir when I did that. I've seen people who were
older & even older diabetics learn it enough for those kinds of uses.
Learn it. Start now. You'll be ecstatic you did. Don't let the
naysayers have their day.

Hi guys!
I always had enough vision that I never felt the need of learning Braille.
I'm 22 and wish to learn it now. I need to make frequent presentations in my
class, and for now, I try and memorize all the stuff I need to present. It's
a difficult and time consuming task, I'm thinking maybe learning Braille
could help me in this regard. I see myself in professions which might need
frequent public speaking.

What do you guys suggest? Is learning Braille a good idea at this point? How
long will it take and how efficient can I get? I have read on this forum
that it is very difficult and you can't get very good at it, if you start
leaning it at an advanced age.

All feedback is welcome.
