Florida Students who are blind or have low vision met in Jacksonville Thursday for an annual Braille reading and writing competition.
For many purposes, Braille has been replaced by smartphone apps and other technologies.
But the Braille system, invented in 1821 by Louis Braille, is not dead yet.
Remember those spelling tests where the teacher called out the word and you wrote it down? Blind children have spelling tests too when they’re learning Braille.
