Scriptures for the blind...
"Scriptures especially prepared for the blind have appeared in many languages.
The most important systems used for English are:
BRAILLE, developed in the 1830's by Louis Braille, a teacher at a school for the blind
BOSTON LINE TYPE, devised in the 1830's by Samuel G. Howe
NEW YORK POINT, developed in the late 19th century by William Wait.
Several forms of the dot system were used in the United States in the early part
of the 20th century, while Braille had become standard throughout the rest of the
English-speaking world. In 1932 the Standard English Braille was adopted by
the Workers for the Blind in the United States, and since that time English Scriptures
have been prepared exclusively in that form. For other languages appropriate
systems have been devised.
The Bible Societies are also increasingly engaged in the preparation
and wide distribution of Scriptures on tapes, cassettes, and records,
to serve the blind and partially sighted.
The following are examples of some of the languages and systems which have--1000 Tongues [Info only]
