Students from the U.S. and Canada gather in L.A. for the 10th annual contest, aimed at drawing attention to the declining use of Braille and its importance to literacy.
Fingers fly over the raised dots, doing the work that eyes cannot. Eleven children in yellow T-shirts are reading one of three passages — "Rainy Day Fun," "Two Great Vacation Ideas" and "Velveteen Rabbit." Then they turn to their Perkins Braillers, which look like a manual typewriter with just nine keys, and stamp out answers to questions that test their reading comprehension.
