World Braille Day is marked today to honour Louis Braille, the inventor of the Braille system of reading and writing for the visually challenged. Celebrated only since 2019, the day takes on extra significance this year as since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, life under lockdown has thrown various challenges for the visually challenged, who rely on Braille and audible formats to access essential information. According to the United Nations the pandemic has revealed how critically important it is to produce essential information in accessible formats, including in Braille and audible formats. Otherwise, many persons with disabilities could face a higher risk of contamination due to a lack of access of guidelines and precautions to protect and reduce the spreading of a pandemic.
