Candle in the Window Conference
Themed issue-oriented workshops, singing, hiking, socializing - all this and more happens every August at this special conference for blind and visually impaired adults. A wonderful opportunity for people with vision loss..

TIP: Use Post-It Notes to mark CD's, books, DVD's etc.

Post-It Notes are those little square or rectangular sheets of paper that have some sticky stuff on one side. You can buy them at a Walgreen's, office supply store etc.; best of all, they are inexpensive.

To use them, tear off a sheet of paper, slip it in your Perkins brailler with the sticky side down and away from you. Braille one or two lines of about ten cells each. Be careful that the sticky stuff doesn't get caught on the brailler; just lift up the top edge a bit when moving the carriage back to the beginning of the line.

Now place the note on your CD or DVD case, book cover etc. When you take the note off again, there will be no sticky residue left on the cover.

I hope to hear from you sometime soon, either in the forum or in response to this email message. I thrive on your feedback!

Have fun passing this message along to family and friends, because we all love free knowledge!
