Day 17: 31 Days of Braille

Navajo Language Braille Code

A teacher for the visually impaired (TVI) in New Mexico developed a braille code for the Navajo language. In a recent article in the local newspaper, the teacher Carol Green was interviewed about her braille code, her inspiration for developing it, and seeking recognition for the code through the Braille Authority of North America (BANA). In addition to highlighting the determination of Green to provide access to the Navajo language to readers with a vision loss, these efforts demonstrate the flexibility of the braille code. Braille is not its own language–a braille code exists for nearly every language.
