Programming books in Braille are next to impossible to find. If you want to learn you must have the book translated into Braille.
Even so, how many of you would bother to learn something if you couldn't see it? Think Braille is easy to learn? Try it. It isn't. It too is close to a programming language of sorts.
Manners go a long way. If you have comment to make regarding something that could be done differently, share that without attempting to humiliate or degrade.
Here's something that says it all ...
A Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Waste By Ambrose E. Brazelton
(1982 ACLD Conference, Chicago)
In the Phi Delta Kappan of Feb. '73
Are some glossed over facts of modern history.
It speaks of several persons of fortune and fame.
Who were initially indicted as hopelessly plain.
The first name of prominence bombarding my mind,
Is the relativity genius, Albert Einstein.
Was four years old before he spoke,
Didn't read til seven (and that's no joke).
The Lord was the first to say, "Let there be light."
But Thomas A. Edison was outta sight.
Tis odd that his products continue to burn,
Though his teacher lamented "He's too stupid to learn".
T'was shocking to read that the great Fred Waring,
Was denied the privilege of musical sharing
By a high school director who prejudged this lad
As noteless, throatless, hopeless and sad.
Winston Churchill, God rest his soul;
A statesman of honor; courageous and bold.
We know of his virtue, the history he made,
But didya know that this leader failed the 6th grade?
A newpaper editor was quick to fire
A young man whose talents he could not admire,
"Not one good idea is his primary fault,
Void of potential is this Disney named Walt. " "Dear teacher, wake up! What is your gripe?
Who empowered you to stereotype?
I'm labeled disabled, unstable, unfit,
I'm graded, berated, persuaded to quit!"
"Your system discourages, renders me numb!
What right have you to consider me dumb?
When concepts confuse me and I can't dig it,
Your attitude tags you a Social Bigot!"
Wake up! Perceive! Too long have we dozed!
TEACHER BEHAVIOR humanely imposed
Must be flaunted with zeal and deliberate haste,
Cause the mind is a terrible thing to waste!
