First-ever World Braille Day underscores importance of written language for human rights Pls follow @cij_icj thanks God bless America Jesus Amen To raise awareness of the importance of Braille for approximately 1.3 billion people living with some form of distance or near vision impairment, on Friday the United Nations is observing the first official World Braille Day. Recognized henceforth each 4 January, the Day was proclaimed by the General Assembly last November, as a means of realizing fully the human rights of visually-impaired and partially-sighted people, and bringing written language to the forefront as a critical prerequisite for promoting fundamental freedoms. The World Health Organization (WHO) reports that people who are visually impaired are more likely than those with full sight to experience higher rates of poverty and disadvantages which can amount to a lifetime of inequality. Around the world, 39 million people are blind, and another 253 million have some sort of vision impairment. For them, Braille provides a tactical representation of alphabetic and numerical symbols so blind and partially-sighted people are able to read the same books and periodicals printed as are available in standard text form. Six dots represent each letter, number, even musical and mathematical symbols, to allow the communication of important written information to ensure competency, independence and equality. . . #braille#louis#france#french#paris#award#awareness#disability#ability#eiffeltower#eiffel#humanrights#mommy#humaninterest#communication#papa#mathematics#alphabet#korea#japan#writer#write#writing#read#reading#equality#language#unesco#independent#independence . . . . . . . . . .v. . ..... . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
