Hello all!

Some of you outside California have expressed interest in attending one of
my three-day trainings for sighted folks who want to learn to read
braille.if only the trainings were closer!

Well for some of you, the time for that closer training is now! We have two
opportunities coming up this fall to attend the braille training outside of
California: one in Utah and one in Florida.

A flyer for the Utah training is attached. The location is at the University
of Utah campus in Salt Lake City, UT, September 27-29, 2017. The Utah
training is free. For more information or to register, please see the link


The Florida training is being conducted in conjunction with the National
Braille Association conference, in Orlando, FL, at the Embassy Suites Lake
Buena Vista South, October 25-27, 2017. The NBA training requires conference
attendance, which is $360 (before October 1).

For more information, please see the NBA website:


For those of you in Florida and, especially those of you in Utah (since that
training is completely free!), please share this information with interested
colleagues. Thank you!
