Louis Braille invented a way for blind people to read and write. Braille is a system of six dots arranged in "cells" of two dots across by three dots down.
July 26, 2007, was the 17th birthday of the ADA. On that day, the ADA Restoration Act was introduced in Congress. According to Melanie Brunson, Executive Director of the American Council of the Blind, in an interview on Sound Prints on Wednesday, July 25, the bill will try to better define what constitutes a disability and to reverse the narrowing of the definition by the courts in recent years.
