My Job is Cool.

Work: Sometimes, knowing how to read Braille comes in handy.

We have a blind consumer who we are asking to speak at an adjustment to blindness seminar that my program is hosting. We sent him a printed letter yesterday, asking him to speak. Today, my caseworker handed me a Brailled letter and asked me to mail it to the gentleman, since she had forgotten that he couldn't read a printed letter.

I was about to ask her for his address, when I realized that I could get it off of the Brailled letter. *snicker*

It was still a little difficult, as I had to figure out that the backwards 't' is the contracted combination for 'ou' but I got everything figured out and the letter mailed.

Much fun! I do need to break myself of the habit of visually reading Braille instead of reading it tactilely.
